4.0 out of 5 stars Tony Randall Under The Sea March 9, 2006
After way too long this comedy classic is finally available. Tony Randall has designed an underwater house. His boss can not see its advantages and wants to scrap the project but Randall convinces him to let his family test it for a month first. Two of Randall's kids are in a band so they invite the rest to join them. Meanwhile Tony's boss is financing a self-contained underwater dredge in the hopes of finding lots of gold.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars cute and campy 1960s gem May 26, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
HELLO DOWN THERE is a very cute comedy from 1969, with top performances from Tony Randall and Janet Leigh, who must have had a ball working on this.

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).

3.0 out of 5 stars Guaranteed to give you "the bends" February 24, 2005
What a fun movie! The concept of living in an underwater house is enough for a story, not to mention adding the top comedy actors of the day and super groovy 60's music ( little goldfish is my favorite ). This movie is good clean fun for the whole family. With plenty of action and laughs for everyone. This long lost classic will charm even today..

5.0 out of 5 stars I have been waiting decades for this one October 6, 2005
By mubs
Some of my fondest movie memories growing up are of this movie starring Tony Randall, Janet Leigh, and Richard Dreyfuss among others. You just can't beat the pure family fun and engaging songs from this film.

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.

Glub Glub Glub - I have to go and watch it right now !!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware!!!! September 10, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this DVD because it was noted as an 'all region' dvd. THAT may be true. HOWEVER, upon arrival, I noticed a note on the exterior of the case that indicated that the DVD will only work in DVD 'players'. NOT in equipment that also has the capability of recording, nor will it play in PC drives. Since my only DVD player also has the capability to record onto DVD, this disc would not work. I am very disappointed and am sending this back.
