Dr. Doug Standish: Yeah, he's done some very impressive research in marine biology. M.E. Hanford from England. Well I'm sure you've read for some of his published material in the last couple of years.
Dr. August 'Gus' Boren: *Her* material.
Dr. Doug Standish: What?
Dr. August 'Gus' Boren: The "M.E." stands for "Margaret Elizabeth." Very attractive, too. As a matter of fact, she just finished doing some research for me.
Dr. Craig Mosby: Well, shall we make it Johnson?
Dr. Doug Standish: Why, because Hanford's a woman? Half the doctors in Russia are women. Not a bad example for us to follow.
Dr. August 'Gus' Boren: He's got a point.

Entertaining for an 7 year old
22 December 2008 | by rdevine_azSee all my reviews

I remember seeing this as part of a summer movie program in 1963. I got to see 11 movies for $1.00. One movie was shown each Tuesday. So I paid nine cents for it. That was fair.

It was great entertainment for the 7-13 year old crowd. Lloyd Bridges was known for Sea Hunt. Keenan Wynn had been in some TV Westerns so he was a known entity. Flipper (Kelly), Daktari(Thompson) and Man from Uncle(McCallum) hadn't even been broadcast, so most of the cast was unknown.

Bad acting, bad science, great special effects. Everything a 7 year old boy looks for.
