Happy birthday, Jules Verne

It is the birthday of French writer Jules Verne (1828), whose stories of fantastic adventure may have done more to advance the genre of science fiction than any other author. He is remembered especially for his novels Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870), and Around the World in Eighty Days (1873). For a time, Walt Disney exploited the gifts of Jules Verne, bringing some of his most memorial tales to the big screen. Here is a trailer for the 1954 film 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, still a riveting classic. Watch the trailer and remember, then get a copy of the original and settle in for good read.
