    20,000 Leagues Under the Sea "Nautilus" Architectural Plans Group of 2 (Walt Disney, 1954). This film was released on 12/29/54. It was directed by Richard Fleischer and starred Kirk Douglas, James Mason, and Peter Lorre among others. The film won two Academy Awards; one for Special Effects (John Hench/Joshua Meador) and one for Art Direction. British-born Harper Goff was credited with the Art Direction on this film as well as designing the Nautilus, but with no proper credentials, the Award was given to his assistant John Meehan. Harper Goff (1911 - 1993) was inducted as a Disney Legend in 1993. This is a set of two rare original architectural plans for the Nautilus Design, created for the movie. The border stamp is printed with "Walt Disney Productions 20,000 Leagues." The plans are dated 10/26/53, and include Harper Goff and John Meehan's names. These plans are pieces of Disney film history. The plans are 3' x 6'; rolled and very brittle, with tears and handling and border wear. Overall Good condition. From the Skip Lange Collection.
