Something Fishy about Miranda

Doctor Paul Martin goes fishing on a bachelor holiday while his wife, not a fan of fishing, stays home. Paul catches the biggest fish ever when he snags Miranda, a beautiful young mermaid and he is pulled underwater to her cave home, played by Glynis Johns. Miranda threatens to keep Paul with her forever unless he will show her the wonderful world outside the sea for a month, and Paul reluctantly agrees. Thus begins our merry mermaid movie about a bewitching siren of the sea and the men that she will captivate. Doctor Paul, played by Griffith Jones, hires Nurse Carey to watch over Miranda, played by the amazing actress Margaret Rutherford. Nurse Carey learns at once that Miranda is a mermaid and is enchanted and delighted, always believing in mermaids and now able to befriend one. Paul's wife Clare, played by Googie Withers, is at once jealous and wary of the young girl who cannot walk, and although all of the women that meet Miranda are a bit jealous, Miranda captivates every man she meets, including Charles the chauffeur, played by David Tomlinson, and artist Nigel, played by John McCallum. Miranda may be the first cold fish that can stir the emotions of hot-blooded men. As Miranda visits the opera and has her portrait secretly painted by the artist, her dreams of experiencing what being a human is like are fulfilled, along with her desire to love men . . . every man she meets . . . It all comes to a head when the artist breaks up with his fiancé so he can ask Miranda to marry him, and the chauffeur also wants to ask Miranda for her hand, and Clare, the doctor's wife, gets very suspicious of the disappearing gold fish in the fish tank that are snacks for Miranda. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
