Eva Marie Saint,
What is meant to be a pleasure cruise becomes a nightmare as murder follows murder on a small ship. With tension mounting, passengers and the crew turn on each other in a desperate attempt to identify the killer.
Director Noel Black described making this film as a series of compromises made in order to please 20th Century Fox. Black originally planned to cast a young, unknown Al Pacino as Tony Hall, but this was just one of the things he had to forsake. Black also disagreed with the ethical issues about filmmaking brought up in the script, wanted to change them but couldn't. See more »
I believe that most extras and some "under-fives", meaning actors are just background or who have under five lines, rarely get credit on-screen.
Look about 15 to 17 minutes into the movie.
Check out the lifeguard giving mouth to mouth to the drowned child.
All you see is a profile for just a second or so.
Looks like Harrison Ford, huh?
Cover Me Babe is a good mirror of how "deep" and pretentious many "creative" young people were in the late sixties, early 70's in America. (I was one of them and oh boy does it smart to see myself so well limned on-screen.)
Also, great to see so many (now) well-known actors knocking out those lines with such flat lighting and coming off with less than star-quality. Reember Deniro in his b-movie, and how much better an actor he "became" with a great cameraman? Same here.
