Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid 1948 6 out of 10


William Powell  stars  as a man dealing with turning 50 years old on an extended vacation with his wife that catches a Mermaid (Ann Blyth)  while fishing....An obvious inspiration for Splash.... She doesn't speak but she sings oh so sweet .   He hides her in the bathtub then in the resorts expensive fish tank where she eats all the 1,000 dollar fish...  He falls in love with her of course -but eventually has to let her go so she won't end up shipped off to some London zoo...  A decent flick.
