Universal creature features, dating back to 1941 when he starred in THE

THE INCREDIBLE PETRIFIED WORLD (1959)
director: Jerry Warren
starring: John Carradine · Phyllis Coates · Robert Clarke · Sheila Noonan
Jerry Warren began 're-directing' and 'Americanizing' Mexican productions
(like the first entry in this double feature), he actually sat in the
director's seat. Here is one of his early projects. Four adventurers descend
to the depths of the ocean when the cable on their underwater diving bell
snaps. The rest of their expedition, believing them to be lost, abandons
hope of finding them. The diving party exits the diving bell and finds
themselves trapped inside a network of underwater caverns.
