Actually, NOT the first film shot undersea, but the first *fiction* film
shot undersea--the same filmmakers, the Williamson brothers, tried out and
proved their techniques in a documentary two years earlier, then wanted to
do 20K (and eventually did more JV too). You can read about their careers
in a couple of my articles on Zvi's site.
