      There’s a lot of memorable aspects to The Glass Bottom Boat, most notable of which is its star, Doris Day. Some of the time, she’s a mermaid for her father, who gives a tour of Catalina Island waters with his glass bottom boat, hence the name. Day is Jennifer Nelson in what is pretty much her standard role, the pretty, capable blonde who meets the man of her dreams, but has to go

      through all kinds of nonsense before hooking him. It’s a process that worked well for Day throughout her career.

      The fish this time around is Rod Taylor, who plays Bruce Templeton. He’s involved a secret formula caper that provides the hi jinx for this Day plot.

      Some of the highlights are:

      –Jennifer calls her dog at home. She lets the phone ring while he runs all over the house to get his exercise. I’ve ...


      • never forgotten this scene.

        –In a quirky tribute to Marilyn Monroe, I’m sure, there’s a scene inside this top-secret building area where Jennifer is going into a clean room. To get there, you step on a screen-like device on the floor that shakes the contaminates from your body. The problem is that she’s wearing high heels and one of them gets stuck in the shaker, so there she is — shaking away.

        –Dom Deluise.

        Enough said. The comic actor was hysterical in his part here. Everything he did is funny.

        –Que Sera Sera. Day sings this early on, and it’s just wonderful to hear her lovely voice.

        –The high tech floor cleaning gadget in Templeton’s kitchen. This thing was a hoot. It was no doubt a precursor, albeit decades early, of those robo-cleaners that are so popular today.

        I love The Glass Bottom Boat; it’s all kinds of spy-like fun.
