Un Capitán de Quince Años (1974)
Adventure. France/Spain. Starring José Manuel Marcos, Edmund Purdom, Howard Vernon, William Berger. Directed by Jesus Franco.
VML (Holland). French with dutch subtitles. Fullscreen.
This low budget Jules Vernes-adaption is almost universally loathed, even amongst Jess Franco fans, but I like it: a nice, relaxing adventure film with a fun cast. I think same whale harpooning footage is also used in another loathed spanish adaption of the same Jules Verne story, that I also happen to like: Juan Piquer Simón's Sea Devils. 3/5
