Which is the first movie that Irwin Allen received an on-screen credit for?
- Double Dynamite
- Where Danger Lives
- The Lost World
- The Sea Around Us
- The Poseidon Adventure
Correct Answer is Where Danger Lives
Several people thought the answer was The Sea Around Us which won an Academy Award. Irwin had in fact made a number of movies before The Sea Around Us. The first movie he was involved with was Double Dynamite (produced in 1948, but not released until 1951). However, he did not receive an on-screen credit for Double Dynamite. The first known movie that he received on-screen credit for was Where Danger Lives.
