Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (Georges Melies,1907)
Silent French filmmaker George Melies adapted Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea in 1907 with his unique filmaking style that emphasized the spectacle of film. That was the second time he adapted a Jules Verne work into film, the first being the science fiction classic 'A Trip to the Moon' in 1902 (see the Canon Album). Melies 'Twenty Thousand Leagues...' was later manually colorized by painting on the film and became one of the first color films.
