Seen on Pittsburgh's Chiller Theater in 1964
10 February 2013 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

1961's "The Mermaids of Tiburon" aired on Pittsburgh's Chiller Theater on Sept 5 1964 (the final 4:00 PM broadcast, the Sunday night co-feature being 1931's "Svengali"), and no doubt was shown in black and white. Today available on a DVD double bill with 1957's "Cry of the Bewitched" (both in glorious color) in the original fullscreen version, and the later letterboxed version, featuring new footage of topless models acting like mermaids. It's nice to have the 'nude' version, but the star of the original, the luminous Diane Webber, is almost completely cut out, and the story arc revolves around our hero's innocent pursuit of this untouchable goddess of the sea (there are glimpses of other mermaids but Diane reigns supreme). All of the topless models are missing the fins worn by the originals, looking like normal women out for some vigorous underwater exercise. Director John Lamb's photography brings this world to life, even including a scene with Diane swimming alongside a (possibly fake) shark. Timothy Carey's gratuitous villain spearguns a topless mermaid, and strips another of her lone seaweed garment, neither of which appear in the original. His intrusive presence disrupts the film's charming narrative, which is left unresolved as the hero vows to return someday. Until a better mermaid film comes along, this one manages to enter their world better than any other. Diane Webber would again don the fiberglass fin for a 1967 episode of VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA (after Marta Kristen got her shot in 1965's "Beach Blanket Bingo").
