Trivia

Goofs

Through the entire movie, Rob had the whistle around his neck, but he lost everything in the raft except his toothbrush. However, there are various pieces that continue to float around him, and it's not until after he has ransacked the sub that the whistle actually makes its first appearance, making it more likely he got the whistle from the sub.

Really liked it!
13 December 2002 | by (West Lafayette, Indiana) – See all my reviews

Okay, I'm looking at this thing through the gauze of nostalgia. I haven't seen it all the way through since that long-ago day in 1966 when I bought a ticket at a local movie theater and watched it.

I remember that I laughed throughout this. Dick Van Dyke has always been a favorite of mine and he was in top-form for this film. Richard Deacon ("The Dick Van Dyke Show" and "Leave It to Beaver" among other things) provides narration. He had an excellent voice.
