This film's director, Frank Tashlin, had earlier been a gag writer and supervisor for Warner Brothers animation, which explains the heavy emphasis here on slapstick humor. His other live-action credits include several Jerry Lewis movies. See more »
At about 14 min. into the movie: Zach (Dick Martin) has fallen through the hole left by the missing grate into the debris, before going into the "clean room". Covered with dirt, etc., he goes to talk with Bruce Templeton (Rod Taylor). Bruce brushes Zach off a little and then seats himself in his office chair and leans back a bit. Bruce's suit jacket has dirt and larger pieces of debris on it. A second or so later when he leans forward, his suit jacket appears completely clean. See more »
I was 17 when this film was released and having fallen in love with Doris Day when I was 11, I was first in the queue. It is a wonderful, wacky film of the mid sixties and Doris Day and Rod Taylor are perfectly matched. The story is a simple case of mistaken identity when Doris is mistaken for a spy at the space centre where she works and Rod Taylor is a scientist. The glass bottom boat of the title is run by her father and provides a seperate focus for the story. The title song and Que Sera Sera are beautifully performed and do not detract from the comedy element of the film. I am submitting this today as I have just seen the film again on TV and it has lost none of its charm.
