In this hectic 'shower and go' world, isn't it nice that somewhere folks are soaking easily in the tub, even if that somewhere happens to be on the silver screen.
It's surprising how many movies include at least one bathtub scene.
Often the tub overflows with soap suds.
What are YOUR favorite movie bathtub scenes?
Here's a few of mine:
A well-oiled Dudley Moore wears a top hat in the tub in ARTHUR (1981).
Lee Remick in an ornate portable tub in THE HALLELUJAH TRAIL (1965).
Mel Gibson and Jim Garner in separate tubs, from MAVERICK (1994).
Marilyn Monroe in THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH (1955).
Evil multi-millionaire Biff Tannen in BACK TO THE FUTURE Part II (1989).
And my all-time favorite, from LI'L ABNER (1940):
Pansy Yokum vigorously scrubs her sobbing husband as he squirms in a rough wooden tub. Lucifer (Pappy) giggles when Pansy (Mammy) rubs the brush over his toes. Next, Pansy dumps the family's pet pig in with Lucifer. The little hawg splashes and squeals loudly. Lucifer ruefully says, "No use complainin' Salomey. Won't do yah no good."
