Welcome to movie clip Wednesday this week's topic: Best Bespectacled Hero. Hosted by the lovely Joanna Cake. If you care to play find a clip try to make it less than 3 minutes and go by Joanna's site and tell her you're up.
Well if you're going to have a hero in glasses, I can think of no better than the Incredible Mr. Limpet. The film is a 1964 American live-action/animated film. It is about a man named Henry Limpet who turns into a talking fish resembling a tilefish and helps the U.S. Navy locate and destroy Nazi submarines, during WW2. Don Knotts plays the title character. His glasses are actually part of the story line and as you can see from this rather low quality copy of the trailer quite prominent throughout the movie. When I was a little kid I thought this movie was very funny. Hope you enjoy the clip.
