Trivia

The original Glass Bottom Boat did not sink. It remains to this day in a modified dry dock on Catalina Island. In 2006 a paddle boat named the Phoenix sank in 800 feet of water off Zuma Beach in California. For some reason this sinking had been incorrectly rumored to the the original Glass Bottom Boat; the Nautilus. The Nautilus can still be visited on Catalina; but it's not a marked attraction. Locals can usually tell where the boat is being kept when asked. See more »

A Must have Wonderful Old Fashioned Comedy!
11 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie has to be one of my all time favorite Doris Day movies. This movie I think showed her serious side and her funny side. Dom Deluise is at his most funniest. He made a really terrible spy. Rod Taylor,Dick Martin and Paul Lynn really worked well together in the movie. Sometimes you get comedy movies with no real plot and terrible acting. Even though this plot was a little far fetched. It worked okay. The acting was good. The producer's also took advantage of Doris Day and had her use her most wonderful voice to sing some songs in the movie. To me that was okay. I had to buy another copy of this movie, I wore out my first one. This is a must have for good old fashioned comedy!
