1948 Classic Mermaid from Universal Pictures…

“While highly engrossing, the film is also very lighthearted and a bit fluffy, which makes it a delight to watch. It isn’t absolutely packed with laughs and it isn’t a grand, award-worthy piece of cinema either, but it’s never dull. It contains a lot of great, witty bits of dialogue, especially between Arthur and Polly.

Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid is a perfect example of a true hidden gem. It isn’t well-remembered or highly regarded, but it’s a top-notch film. Slightly ridiculous, high on charm and thoroughly entertaining, this film is everything that a fantasy-comedy should be.”
