Miranda on DVD
"Paul Marton is a Harley Street doctor who announces to his wife that he intends to take a fishing holiday alone. He sets off for Cornwall and indulges in a spot of fishing until one day he catches a beautiful mermaid! Meanwhile, his wife receives a telegram saying that her husband will be returning accompanied by a patient. Expecting an aging invalid, she is shocked on their arrival to see a beautiful young woman with her legs wrapped in cloth. Will anyone discover Miranda’s fishy secret?"
I've seen the movie several times and it's quite funny and definitly recommended. Every time she eats a fish I laugh! Here's a clip where Miranda is taken to the zoo:
There was also a sequel released in 1954 called Mad About Men, but so far it hasn't been released by a studio. You can, however, find copies taped from TV on ebay.
According to one of our swimmers (Michelle) Miranda, Mad About Men, and Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid are all going to be available streaming on Netflix!!
