The two projects clash. Randall's wife is afraid of water. The band gets a chance to be on TV but can't leave the house. On top of it all, the underwater rock music has convinced the Navy that there is Russian activity going on and the fleet mobilizes. But despite sharks, lawsuits, seals, and even a hurricane, everyone manages to keep their heads above water.
I always loved this movie as a kid and I bought it as soon as I saw it. Despite its age it has stood up well. The record company uses a computer to predict hits in ways marketing computers are currently used. A fine cast and some guest appearances certainly don't hurt. So if you want to see the original underwater beach movie, this is the one.
Fred Miller (Tony Randall) is a wacky inventor who builds a house under the ocean. His grumpy boss (Jim Backus) believes the entire project is a waste of company time and money, so Fred offers to have his family live in the house for 30 days. There are only three major obstacles: Fred's "aqua-phobe" wife Vivian (Janet Leigh); and his two teenaged musician kids (Kay Cole and Gary Tigerman), who are on the verge of signing with a major record label.
This film is a breezy joy from beginning to end. The house itself is very imaginative, and the underwater photography is amazing. HELLO DOWN THERE was filmed in Florida at the studios of Ivan Tors Productions (famous for "Flipper" and "Gentle Ben"), allowing for lots of authentic location filming.
The cast also includes Charlotte Rae, Roddy McDowall, Ken Berry, Lee Meredith (Ulla in the original "Producers"), Harvey Lembeck, and a teenaged Richard Dreyfuss.
Paramount's new DVD features a crisp anamorphic print which long-time fans will simply adore. (Single-sided, single-layer disc).
For years I have been contacting classic movie stations and video stores in hopes this would be released for a whole new generation to enjoy, but I thought it would never happen. When I recently found out it was really going to happen, I let out a scream of jubilation so loud it could have probably rivaled the biggest fans at the World Series or Super Bowl.
