This week's Tuesday's Overlooked Film is the 1969 aquatic comedy Hello Down There.
Hello Down There stars Tony Randall as Fred Miller, an engineer who designs an underwater home for his company. To prove its feasibility, he moves his wife (Janet Leigh) and children into a prototype, named the Green Onion, to live there for thirty days. His teenage children (along with a very young Richard Dreyfuss) belong to a rock group that gets the attention of a record exec (Roddy McDowell) who is so impressed with the group that he books a television appearance for the band on The Merv Griffin Show from the Green Onion with the real Merv Griffin in tow! Add to the story a rival engineer (Ken Berry), a fight between sharks and dolphins, a pet seal, and Jim Backus, and you get an offbeat late 60s romp of a film.
As silly as the description sounds, it's actually a fun film--at least my boyhood self thought so back in the day. The film was once released on DVD but is unfortunately out of print, but you might be able to pick this up on the secondary market.
In lieu of the actual film, enjoy this clip of Dreyfuss lip synching to a voice that sounds nothing like him (the voice of big time music producer Jeff Barry, to be exact). Enjoy!
