When irascible boss T.R. Hollister (Jim Backus) threatens to pull the plug on an underwater environmental living project, employee Fred Miller (Tony Randall) and his wife, Vivian (Janet Leigh), take their family down in the deep to live for 30 days. With all the modern conveniences of a home on land, the family even invites a rock & roll band to get down and record. Merv Griffin (himself) arranges an underwater interview for his television show while Mel Cheever (Ken Berry) schemes to get Fred's job back on dry land.
This 1969 screwball comedy involves a scientist who is given the assignment of spending one month in a simulated underwater home.
"It's entertainment that fills up the screen like she fills out a bikini," the trailer for Don't Make Waves proclaimed. She is Sharon Tate, portraying a beach-loving, sky-diving beauty named Malibu. The entertainment filling up the screen is a gleeful sand-and-surf-and-sex satire based on Ira Wallach's Muscle Beach, set to a title tune by The Byrds and targeting SoCal's go-go beach culture and the high-living hillside denizens of its ocean-view enclaves. Tony Curtis, reteaming with director Andrew Mackendrick of Sweet Smell of Success, plays an eastern interloper who arrives with little and hits on ways to finagle his way into lots. Also making waves: Claudia Cardinale, Robert Webber, Joanna Barnes and bodybuilder David Draper.
