Hello Down There ★★½ 1969 (G)

Harmless—if dated—family comedy. Inventor Fred Miller (Randall) persuades his reluctant family to participate in a month-long experiment that has them living in a prototype underwater home. Wife Vivian (Leigh) is afraid of the water and his teenaged children are distressed because their pop band has a chance at a record deal. Meanwhile, the living room pool attracts sharks and an overly-friendly seal. Shot in Florida. 97m/C DVD . Tony Randall, Janet Leigh, Jim Backus, Ken Berry, Charlotte Rae, Richard Dreyfuss, Roddy MacDowall; D: Jack Arnold; W: Frank Telford, John McGreevey; C: Clifford Poland; M: Jeff Barry.
