Top Ten Mermaid Movies – #4

Mr-Peabody-and-the-mermaid shared by AquaTails quality mermaid tails for swimmingTop Ten Mermaid Movies – #4 At AquaTails, home of quality mermaid tails for swimming.  Number four of my top mermaid movies is an old, black and white classic, called “Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid.” You will have a challenge finding this movie to watch, but VHS versions are available for sale on Amazon.com. All of the underwater footage was filmed in the famous Weeki Wachee Springs in Weeki Wachee, Florida, only a year after this first underwater theater opened. Made in 1948, this movie is about a married couple taking a vacation in the Caribbean. The man is almost 50 and is having a mid-life crisis. While on vacation he accidentally fishes up a live mermaid from the sea! Ann Blyth plays the enchanting mermaid and you will love this wonderful film. The only objections a parent might have is the theme of extramarital flirting, and some funny scenes with a guy trying to give up smoking.
