Voyage to the Bitch-Slap of the Sea (1961)

Words to the wise: Don't get in Walter Pidgeon's way when he is trying to save the world.

Walter Pidgeon bitch-slaps a hella lot of people in the film Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. Frankie Avalon gets it like six times. He should get a few more just for the opening theme song, which is about as disconnected from science fiction as you can get.

  1. Ha, this is great. They did such great slaps in movies in the olden days.

  2. I wonder what OSHA would say about this? [Seaview being a privately owned vessel]

  3. They may have more work to do on that uncovered shark tank with knee-high railings.

  4. Pidgeon probably saw Frankie's performance in The Alamo(1960).

    Just sayin', that's all.

  5. One of my buddies recently had an idea for a "Queens in Space" parody featuring Pidgeon's Morbius, Jonathan Harris, and Michael Rennie.
