  1. gotta love it when they decide
    'Hmm, no-one wants to see this movie. Let's do a poster that shows off half naked women... in fact, lets forget the plot or anything and have a women diving to 10,000 leagues (Hang on.. is leagues a measurement of depth?) in a two peice swimsuit.

  2. You hav eto wonder what actress Cathy Downs might have thought when the poster was hung in the theater lobby: "Uh, is that supposed to be me? Did they shoot scnes with a stand-in that i don't know about? What will mom and dad say?"

  3. Manic Man - I'm sure the filmmakers mistook leagues as a depth measurement (something people have been doing since Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea). Obviously, accuracy wasn't important!

    David - I'm guessing Cathy Downs was just happy to get a paycheck!
