I did, indeed, attend this weekend’s ApolloCon, along with our own John D. On Saturday I managed to attend one panel, this one about steampunk. During the discussion, Lawrence Person (who I see is part of the Austin Cabal with Chris Roberson) named a proto-steampunk movie that most people have never seen, let alone even heard of. That movie was the 1958 film, The Fabulous World of Jules Verne. I was intrigued enough to try and track down this movie, which is supposedly in the public domain. Sadly, I have been unable to find the full movie. However, I did find this trailer on YouTube. Yes, the SFX is poor by today’s standards, but this was a 1958 foreign film so I’m going to cut it some slack. Now I’d really like to find the full version…
