Viewers with a deep affection for cheese will savor Irwin Allen's City Beneath the Sea, a big, big bubble of sci-fi silliness best reviewed by fdixon-3. I won't trod over fdixon's terrain, but there are a couple of fun things to add to his review.
I've spoken of how much I liked Rosemary Forsyth, and you can see her career slowly sink in CBTS. She looks wonderful in a mini-skirt, but long legs and hurt looks (at hero Stuart Whitman's suspected cowardice) can't keep this soggy nonsense afloat.
Needless to say, Allen pretty much bailed out of TV and went for the big screen (with The Towering Inferno and When Time Ran Out).
Lucky for TV.
