Transcript NOTE: THE SCHEDULE FOR THE VIDEO ROOM WILL BE POSTED DAILY ON THE VIDEO ROOM DOOR THUSRDAY, MARCH 22, 1984 9: 15-1l:OOam MR. PEABODY AND THE MERMAID USA 1948 Directed by Irving Pichel With William Powell, Ann Blyth, Irene Hervey, Andrea King, Clinton Sundberg You've heard about the one that got away ? Well, here's the story of a man whose catch didn't... and what a catch it was! William Powell is Mr. Peabody, a middle-aged Bostonian approaching that moment of crisis in life that every man faces when he reaches that "moment." With his wife, Peabody has gone on a kind of "second honeymoon," renting a house on one of the Pacific Islands, enduring the "social" life involving neighbors ranging from boring to not-so-boring. His life suddenly gets exciting when he finds himself hooking the prize catch of them all; a real live mermaid! A beautiful young lady, this denizen of the deep captures Peabody's heart and returns his affection. Peabody even takes her home, making a home for her in his swimming pool. Soon his seemingly eccentric behavior causes his wife to suspect another woman. How do you tell your wife that her rival isn't completely human, yet is not entirely inhuman? And when an attractive neighbor starts to set her philandering eye upon Peabody, there's nothing more hostile than an angry mermaid. Things move to an unusual ending in this very different fantasy comedy, with William Powell giving another of his excellent and engaging performances as the man with an u/iusual sweetheart and Ann Blyth as the mermaid, handling a difficult part (she doesn't speak a word of dialogue) with charming skill. For those with a love of comedy and a helping of the unusual. ll:15-l:00pm BURN WITCH BURN Great Britain 1962 Directed by Sidney Hayers With Janet Blair, Peter Wyngarde, Margaret Johnston, Anthony Nicholls, Kathleen Byron Fritz Leiber's classic novel of the occult.
