Mr. Peabody And The Mermaid
Things seem to be going swimmingly for Mr. Peabody (William Powell, The Thin Man) - then one day his life takes a whimsical turn. While fishing, he snags a beautiful mermaid (Ann Blyth, Mildred Pierce). In a flight of youthful fancy, the stodgy Bostonian falls for the mermaid and takes her to a pond at his villa. The seemingly harmless crush creates all sorts of comical mix-ups! When Mr. Peabody's jealous wife's car is found abandoned, the discovery leads the police to believe he bumped off his own life (Irene Hervey, The Lucky Stiff)! Irving Pichel (The Miracle of the Bells) directed this whimsical comedy with an uproarious screenplay by legendary Nunnally Johnson (The Dark Mirror, The Dirty Dozen).
