DAMN IT IS FEBRUARY 12th AND I MISSED AN IMPORTANT UNDERWATER MOVIE MILESTONE
It was 60 years ago January 16 that comedian Don Knotts (man in middle of photo) opened his movie, The Incredible Mr. Limpet, at the Weeki Wachee underwater mermaid attraction in Florida.
The Incredible Mr. Limpet was a Warner Brothers 1964 American live-action/animated adventure film. It starred Don Knotts, Carole Cooke and Jack Weston. Mr Limpet had the ability to turn into a fish. He enlisted in the US Navy during WW11 and as a fish, sinks a number of Nazi subs! Photo from Flickr Commons / Florida Archives.
