The Glass Bottom Boat

Oct 1, 2020

I was watching this 1966 Doris Day film the other day. It is still quite enjoyable. I like the Robotic kitchen sequence and Paul Lynde is always funny.

But I think the cover of the DVD (and presumably the posters at cinemas in 1966/1967) is misleading. Yes, Doris does wear the outfit but only for a couple of seconds whilst Rod Taylor imagines her in a variety of odd situations.

PS: “Sweetheart, I’m gonna buy you a Glass Bottom Boat”.

“Aw honey, I don’t want no fish looking up my skirt”.

(That exchange isn’t in the film either. That’s just what’s in MY imagination).
