    Synopsis


    The Incredible Mr. Limpet
    In this amusing fantasy, a combination of live-action and animated effects, Don Knotts plays scrawny bookkeeper Henry Limpet, who longs to help the U.S. after the outbreak of World War II. He becomes depressed after being turned down by the Navy, particularly after his pal George (Jack Weston) is accepted. When Henry takes a walk on the Coney Island pier with his wife Bessie (Carole Cook), he falls into the water and is transformed into a fish, complete with his reading spectacles. Henry finally gets to help the war effort by helping to track down Nazi U boats for the Navy. Andrew Duggan and Larry Keating play the admirals who spearhead the secret mission involving the transformed Henry. Longtime Disney production associate John Rose was the producer of this film, and the influence of the animation is evident. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

      Don Knotts is such a versatile comedian. He really brings this movie to life as man in a mid-life crisis who is searching for himself. He finds it in a dream as a fish that blends animation that jumps at you with with real life actors. It also brings a tremendous amount of nostalgia as I remember this from childhood on the saturday afternoon movie on tv in my town. The Blu ray is an improvement over the DVD as well.

      I was pleasantly surprised to see this released on blu-ray, this takes you back to a time when even the simplest film making is better then what the film industry is churning out today.

      It's Don as a fish, its a classic!! He works for the Navy destroying the enemy U-boats. It's better then any of the Bond movies.
