Disney Watch: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954)

Dang.  Just got done watching 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954), and that is one dark, morally ambiguous kids' movie.  And as much as I remembered loving that movie before, and as much as I really loved it as a kid - dang, does that movie hold up.

When I was about 6, my mom read me either the full book of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, or a kid's adaptation.  Neither of us remembers which, because I have asked.  But she did remember I was sort of bonkers for the book.

As a kid, I saw the movie several times, and I know I watched it at least once at school, because the whole cafeteria full of kids watching the movies kind of went bananas.

What's not to like?

I swear, I'm not a car guy: Rolls Royce Phantom I Jonckheere Coupe

Holy smokes.  This is a cool car.

Before you ask, no... I've never seen this car in person.  I stumbled across it online.

But I like a good car museum.  The evolution of cars over the years is a fascinating thing to walk through, and to try to imagine the cars as new and modern during the time when they rolled off the assembly line and to wonder what our cars will look like in 50 years always sets me back a little.
