Great movie. She has a more natural outdoorsie look and this is the first time I can recall being able to see her freckles in a 1960's film. Loved Mable and Norman. Alice Pearce was wonderful. This movie worked well on so many levels.

I saw this movie last night and LOVED IT!!! So nice to see something and laugh out loud, and be surprised by something that happened in a scene. :lol: :shock:
I love the natural look Doris had in this film, and love the clothes! I'll buy this movie for sure.
I'm sure most people hear have seen this movie, but if not, please do see it. Very, very funny!!! :lol:
This is real slapstick comedy!

Robert Vaughan has his autobiography out at the moment and I went to 'D' in the index; as I always do! He makes very fleeting refernce to his non speaking part in Glass Bottom Boat but does say that Miss Day was the sexiest star he ever worked with - [how true, I loved reading that]!

Doris was at her peak of beauty in Glass Bottom Boat. Robert Vaughan was correct! :D Who would have imagned by two years, 1968 ,her movie career would be over. It seems like it never has really ended. Doris looked natural and sexy in her last film too, With Six You Get Eggroll!

I agree with you a hundred percent Ray, Doris was very lovely in this picture. TGBB was a high tech movie for its day and I loved it. Who would have ever thought that she would almost have been done with her movie life at that point ? I loved her on her television show, im so glad that we were able to have our darling Doris come into our homes every week. If they gave Doris a nickel for every time she made one of us smile, she would be the richest person in the world . :D BILL

I was watching this movie yesterday and noticed that the picture by her bedside is of Marty. I assume he is supposed to represent her late husband. Sort of a strange bit of foreshadowing if you ask me.

Wow, I've never noticed that. I will have to look for that the next time I watch it. Thanks for sharing!
It's a wonderful day for Doris Day <3

Apparently on this day (June 9th) in 1966, The Glass Bottom Boat was released:

That would make you about 50-something, though, Megan - not much time to get your name up in lights - unless you'd done it already of course, but I don't remember seeing it anywhere. :wink:

*sigh* I suppose you're right. You can't have it all, I guess I'll just take what I get.

Jas1 wrote:I adore this movie. It is very funny and Doris never looked better. Never since "Teacher's Pet" has her wardrobe been designed so lushishly (is there such a word?) around her figure. I love the scene where she looses her shoe in the "clean" room - that girl was groovin her way through the 1960's - she looks about 30 through most of the film - filters or not, she looks amazing.
Finally I got a chance to see this movie as it was on TCM today.Not only does our beloved star looks stunning throughout,but she comes on so strong and funny.The "Que sera" bit I found so touching.The natural look and great figure and great acting surely is hitmovie.Truly enjoyed it.

I just LOVE this movie! The scene with Mr Pritter is SO hilarious! I love Vladimir!!! and the guy that follows her all the time thinking she's a spy! and I love it when they sing the song + "when I was just a little girl, I asked my father what will I be; will I be reckless, will I be shy,..." - LOVE THAT!!!
I love the neighbors and when she goes in through their window! Can't stop laughing!
Anyways, I could go on and on about this one...

Glass Bottom Boat is my all time favorite move with Doris Day I love all her movies but to me this was by far the funniest movie I ever saw. I went to the drive in with my father at least 8 times to see this it was the first movie I owned I just got the music from it on my ipod. It holds great memories for me and my sisters.

Just watched this movie, very funny! And Paul Lynde, who played the security guy, is just hilarious (I've seen him before in "Send me no flowers"). :D

By the way, Mata Hari was born in the same town as me (Leeuwarden). :)
Would you please get off this line!

I loved her clothes in GBB- especially that white dress and the pink suit, stylish, with a hint of real modern chic- for the time!
