Frogwomen Kara and Lucy in “Scuba Spy”, Version 2 [16th video of Project F – 2nd video shoot]

So, it’s time for the fifth video of the 2nd video shoot of “Project F”!

As mentioned in the previous posts the videos from that shoot will be pretty short, but action-packed as we tried some simple action scenarios.

Frogwoman Kara is taking pictures of some secret stuff, but frogwoman Lucy isn’t too happy about it!

That leads to a scuba fight… 😉

 

Frogwomen Kara and Lucy in “Scuba Spy, Version 2”, 1080p, 60 frames, 2:08 minutes

 

Some preview pictures:

(click to enlarge)

 

+ a short teaser:

Background info:

This is the second video with the “scuba spy” scenario (the first one is video 12).

In this version, Frogwoman Kara is holding onto her Camera with the precious images she just shot. Of course, that is a rather big handicap for her as she can only use one arm/hand to defend herself against the attacker.

I guess in a long, scripted version of this scenario she should have some kind of bag/pocket to stash it away or at least have it tied to her wrist with a tiny rope.

Or she could just let it float to the bottom, for that the camera would need some weights, as it floats to the surface… as you can see in video 12.

Frogwoman Lucy really seems to enjoy yanking at other divers regulators 😉

This video has a very short alternative ending at the end.

 

Editing:

I used some filters (10% more brightness in gamma and gain, text).

 

Where to watch it?

The video is available in the VIP club in November alongside the other content….as it is under 4 minutes of running time!

Here is a quick overview of the content of this month:

https://frogwoman.org/frogwoman-vip-club-2-0-november-2022

 

You can download these videos in the VIP club, but only for personal use.

Don’t share them with anyone…. anywhere!

It’s pretty simple, I had to spend a lot of money:

All that scuba gear, location rent, and the money for the frogwomen….

If I don’t make enough money with these videos….. I won’t be able to make new videos at some point.

So…. I hope you appreciate these videos and want to see more in the future!

And after all, you get a LOT of videos (7 in November) and other content for just 10 Euro (or even less per month if you get into the VIP club for more than one month).

I would say that is quite a bargain! I also wanna make longer videos in the future and they will be much more expensive in comparison (but also better).

They will cost 1-2 Euro per minute, which is the “normal” rate for such videos.

I will also keep doing videos for the VIP club.

This and other “Project F” videos will be rotated out of the VIP club in December and then return in 3-4 months.

Other Project F videos will return to the VIP club in November and 2 new ones will premier that month.

What’s next?

I will post (at least) 2 more videos from that video shoot in the next weeks.

One last one (from this video shoot) in December (+maybe another one in December?)

And of course, there will be new material next year as well.

The one I will post in early December is my favorite video from this video shoot.

In that one Frogwoman Lucy wants to repeat what she did at the end of video 5, it has something to do with a scuba knife 😉

#mysterious hint

Diver wants to drown his wife to get insurance money!

Not in real life in this case, but in a movie.

Thanks to the guy who recommended me this Chinese movie!

100% sure that I would have never seen this one without a recommendation as Chinese movies mostly are never shown outside of China.

Preview:

And here is the video:

Watch the video before you continue!

I bet you are confused right now! 😉

Well, I was too… until the guy who recommended this one explained it to me.

I would love to watch the whole movie, but since I don’t speak Chinese, that doesn’t make sense.

I hardly doubt this movie will ever get subtitles or a dub.

The overall story is seemingly that he wants to drown his wife and then get the insurance money, claiming she died by accident.

But he then gets stuck in a time loop(!) and in one version he kills her again (version 2 in the video), perhaps in others too but it isn’t shown on screen.

In the end, he gets out of the time loop (as he doesn’t kill her in version 3 in the video)… and there seems to be a happy ending.

Now to the different versions:

Version 3 is interesting as the audience thinks he will turn off her air once again, but actually, he doesn’t do it this time.

Version 1 is shot quite weirdly as big parts of the action aren’t shown properly. It’s cut too fast and she drowns nearly instantly.

Version 2 is the most interesting and best for me. It’s shown how he turns off her air, and the struggle is a little longer. She fights back a little more, but still drowns very fast. Certainly, there is a lot of room for improvement, but it’s a good and thrilling scene for me.

The title is seemingly:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt18395698/

 

My original info was:

深潜

aka “Diving day”

aka “Deep diving day”

(according to the guy who recommended the movie to me)

What do you think of those scenes?

The female cliff diver and the evil scuba diver

This is kind of a cheat post in terms of female divers… but I think you will find it interesting!

Thanks a LOT to the guy who recommended me this movie.

There is also quite an even better male scuba peril/fight scene in it, maybe I will add that to the post as well in the next weeks.

Preview:

And here is the video:

Watch the video before you continue!

Damn, what I would give if we had the female cliff divers and (at least) one female diver!

But still, the scene is very interesting as the scuba fight is well done and quite long. 🙂

You might wanna know the background story behind this:

The naughty scuba killer killed her brother earlier in the movie and (obviously) wants to kill her as well.

This is a French TV movie, and I doubt there will be a dub or subs for this one. And my French from school isn’t good enough to watch the whole movie.

The police anticipated that move and set up a trap for the bad guy. The scuba diver with the blue wetsuit is the hero of the movie.

It’s quite strange that both divers were very close to her landing spot, but seemingly the bad guy didn’t notice the police diver before… which is odd as divers make a lot of bubbles (unless they use rebreathers).

But ok, that is basically my only complaint (besides the gender issue) with this scene.

The scuba fight is filmed well in my opinion, and it takes the detective quite some strength and time to disarm the evil diver that never had a real chance as there are also additional police divers at the scene to intervene.

The detective uses these huge twins tank in all his scuba scenes in the movie. Well, quite a BIG air supply! And he actually needed that earlier on 😉

Scuba villainess VS female police diver! [Scuba fight][Blog exclusive]

Thanks to the guy who recommended me this one!

The description of this scene sounds too good…

An evil female diver is sending top-secret info to a foreign government. A female detective is on her trail and we have the final showdown between those two in a scuba fight!

That sounds like a story that I would have written 😉

Let’s check out the scene and see if it can live up to the promise….

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1scpXSOW2y4_LYZyqfm15Vc4zeDtoVDra/view?usp=sharing

(EDIT October 17: Video was blocked…. had to move it)

Watch the video before you continue!

I wanted to show both in their wetsuits on dry land and build in short scenes with both of them prior to the underwater fight.

I cut out some surface scenes as they slow down the action.

 

A little confused by the video? (It helps to watch the scene several times)

Let me summarize the action:

The villainess is sending top-secret data via that computer thingy.

Meanwhile the “good guys” arrive on top and check out the boat of the villainess, the villainess knows that as she has cameras on board.

The villainess hides and waits for the detective to arrive.

Her knife attack fails and the detective yanks out her regulator.

She puts it back and attacks a second time with her knife.

The detective manages to close the air valve of the villainess who retreats then.

Hmh, let’s start with the positive aspects in my opinion:

We have some good moves like stealing a regulator and closing the tank valve. Plus there is a scuba knife involved, even if it is quite tiny.

Also some (weird) yanking on the strap(!) of a scuba mask. Very unusual, never seen that in a movie or TV show!

It’s good that they have some different colors on their scuba gear so you can tell who is who. Nothing I should mention as a positive aspect, but that isn’t something that can be taken for granted as some movies/TV shows demonstrate.

 

Now to the bad aspects…

The background music may be ok as long there is no action. But as the scuba fight starts the music doesn’t react at all to it, completely lame snooze music.

That is totally bizarre as the music is supposed to underline what is happening on screen. The music/sound department screwed up here big time 😆

You can actually see a safety diver/cameraman in the background several times during the underwater action…. that isn’t supposed to happen 😉

As the villainess attacks, the “good” diver has suddenly no regulator in her mouth but a tube of some sort!?! WTF?! (at 02:54)

The yanking on the strap of the scuba mask of the detective is a nice aspect, but why can’t she get her scuba mask off in the process? Come on, that is quite easy then.

The whole action is mostly quite weird as they don’t control each other’s arms but just hold onto each other for most of the time.

Their hands are free very often…they could easily go for the other one’s mask or regulator, but they don’t… they are holding back a lot.

It’s a little weird that the villainess gives up like that.

Yeah, her air was turned off, but that isn’t a problem since the detective isn’t following her.

She could easily turn it back on and attack again. But I guess she was demoralized after she lost twice times against her.

Well, if you take the description the actual video is a little disappointing if you consider all aspects.

But it certainly delivers a pretty long scuba fight between two frogwomen, so that is already a great thing! 🙂

Yeah, many things could be improved here… but is certainly is a remarkable scene.

After all, there aren’t exactly many female scuba fights to be found in movies.

Fun facts:

The villainess works for the “evil” Americans while the detective works for the “good” Chinese.

Looks like this Chinese TV show has some propaganda messages in this one 😉

Wanna know from which movies this is?

Don’t have an IMDB link since it is a Chinese TV show, but here is the title:

谍战深海 aka “Ocean espionage_spy war deep sea”

What do you think of that scuba fight?

Frogwomen Ruby and Lucy in “Treasure hunt” [13th video of Project F – 2nd video shoot]

So, it’s time for the second video of the 2nd video shoot of “Project F”!

Also the video premiere of Frogwoman Ruby!

Sorry for the delay! Some logistical problems had to be solved first…

As I mentioned in the previous post the videos from that shoot will be pretty short, but action-packed as we tried some simple action scenarios.

 

Frogwomen Ruby and Lucy in “Treasure hunt”, 1080p, 60 frames, 2:57 minutes

 

Some preview pictures:

(click to enlarge)

 

+ a short teaser:

Background info:

This is the first video with Frogwoman Ruby in action! And she did a fine job without any prior scuba experience. She used to play underwater rugby in the past for a while and that may be the reason why she is pretty fearless and was a good match for Frogwoman Lucy. 🙂

She also had no problems

Spoiler title
with Lucy closing the air valve on her tank (we tested it once on the surface).

Sometimes it wasn’t easy for me to keep up with the two, as they made good use of the space they had in that deep pool as they swam at a pretty high pace.

At the beginning of the video (before the fight), you will notice

Spoiler title
blue bars over certain small areas of the screen (for about 20 seconds in total).

Sorry for that, but the frogwomen are visible all the time, so it’s not such a big issue. I had to do it since the security diver was visible in these parts of the video and …..well…. he wasn’t supposed to be visible 😉 A mistake that won’t happen again.

I was glad that I could use the stunning Cressi Triton suit this time and it looked great on Ruby. Perhaps I will buy that suit again in M or L.

I found it as a real bargain (in comparison to its normal price) in size S. But that suit is too small for most women …in this size…

For a test video that has basically no script, I am really happy with the result. It was a good test to see how the Frogwomen would handle such a fight scene and react to certain aspects.

Certainly wanna use that “fight over treasure” scenario in the future again, but then with a detailed script (incl. storyline), and a proper ending.

 

 

Fun facts:

Check out how Ruby is clearing her mask in the background as Lucy has found the gold coin.

The gold coin was in fact a standard greek coin (from before they got the Euro as well).

Editing:

I used some filters (10% more brightness in gamma and gain, text).

As I mentioned before the audio here was challenging with a sound the camera picked up from the pool machinery.

So far I haven’t figured out how to suppress that sound without damaging the “wanted” audio. But well, it isn’t really a big issue here as the 3 regulators here make a lot of noise so that background noise isn’t really distracting (as you can hear in the preview teaser video above).

 

Where to watch it?

*EDIT* November 1

The video was available in the VIP club in October alongside the other content….as it is under 4 minutes of running time!

It will be available again in the VIP club in January!

Here is a quick overview of the content of this month:

https://frogwoman.org/frogwoman-vip-club-2-0-november-2022

 

You can download these videos in the VIP club, but only for your personal use.

Don’t share them with anyone…. anywhere!

It’s pretty simple, I had to spend a lot of money:

All that scuba gear, location rent, and the money for the frogwomen….

If I don’t make enough money with these videos….. I won’t be able to make new videos at some point.

So…. I hope you appreciate these videos and want to see more in the future!

And after all, you get a LOT of videos (9 in October) and other content for just 10 Euro (or even less per month if you get into the VIP club for more than one month).

I would say that is quite a bargain! I also wanna make longer videos in the future and they will be much more expensive in comparison (but also better).

They will cost 1-2 Euro per minute, which is the “normal” rate for such videos.

I will also keep doing videos for the VIP club.

What’s next?

I will post (at least) 4 more videos from that video shoot in the next weeks.

1 more in October, 2 more in November, and the last one in December.

And of course, there will be new material next year as well.

Don’t know when I post my personal favorite exactly…yet.

Frogwomen Kara and Lucy in “Scuba Spy” [12th video of Project F – 2nd video shoot]

So, it’s time for the first video of the 2nd video shoot of “Project F”!

As I mentioned in the previous post the videos from that shoot will be pretty short, but action-packed as we tried some simple action scenarios.

 

Frogwomen Kara and Lucy in “Scuba Spy”, 1080p, 60 frames, 2:25 minutes

 

Some preview pictures:

(click to enlarge)

 

+ a short teaser:

Background info:

I do know 2 movies/TV shows that have this “Diver takes pictures and gets attacked” scenario. James Bond in Thunderball and the frogwoman in the “Silk Stalkings” TV show.

And in the future, I wanna make a version with a detailed script where a frogwoman takes pictures of some secret stuff and gets attacked by an evil frogwoman who wants to stop her (and kill her).

For this video, I used only some basic instructions on what the two should and could do and it was a one-shot without any re-shoots.

My camera was a little shaky in the first few seconds. I’m pretty new to the whole filming aspect and it’s not easy to totally focus on the tiny camera screen when such a scene happens in real life right before you 😉

It was also not easy to follow these two with the camera, but I think it worked out quite well even though it’s a bit of a challenge to move around in 3 dimensions and stay in a good position to the moving action.

I am very happy about how the 2 frogwomen (Kara + Lucy) did such an action scene underwater! I mean the two have basically no scuba experience and only had that mini scuba session from the first video shooting back in December. I am glad they returned for another video shoot!

They were really brave and the scene worked out pretty fine in my opinion.

Frogwoman Lucy really likes to steal regulators and likes to be a scuba villainess 😉

We had only 5 hours to shoot and a LOT of time was needed to assemble the gear and all that. And I wanted to get several quick scenarios done in that time to gain experience in shooting underwater action scenes.

I will write detailed scripts for the next shooting, as long these videos generate enough money to cover at least the expenses.

Yeah, the video here is short, but it has a rather long scuba fight (90% of the runtime). In the end, most scuba fights in movies or TV shows are much shorter in the end.

With a detailed script I wanna make a video with this scenario that will have at least 5 or 6 minutes.

But we made a 2nd version of this fight, I will post that in the next weeks as well.

 

Fun fact:

At first the fight was supposed to be about the camera but that quickly floated out of sight and mind (can be seen on the surface in the last seconds).

Next time I will need to add some weight into the camera 😉

 

Editing:

I used some filters (10% more brightness in gamma and gain, text).

As I mentioned before the audio here was challenging with a sound the camera picked up from the pool machinery.

Still working on improving that with audio filters, so you will find 2 versions of this. One with the original audio and the latest version with audio filters.

You can check the (original) sound in the video above. It’s not really bad, but I still try to find a way to improve it.

Female diver gets chased by male diver

This one is a classic that I know for a while but somehow didn’t upload.

By now a fine HD quality is available… so this scene finally makes it to this blog.

Let’s check out the scene!

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

You may already know what my problems with this scene are 😉

She looks great in her bikini, even though I would prefer a wetsuit.

It’s great to have him chasing her, but of course, I (and nearly everybody else) was looking forward to a nice scuba fight scene.

Yeah, that doesn’t happen 🙁

A shame she didn’t also have a knife and confronted him.

Many might say that it’s odd that she is able to outswim him as she manages to not only get away from him, there is quite some distance between them as she leaves the water.

But I can easily accept that a well-trained woman like her can outswim an average guy.

I don’t get why he waited so long to attack her and especially since he was drawing the knife as she was watching him. He wasted the moment of surprise.

I haven’t watched the whole episode (the 2nd part of a two-parter) and the scene on the boat quite confuses me.

She swims away from him just to go back onto their boat?

He throws the knife after her (deliberate miss?) and she is quite relaxed and didn’t even grab the knife that is next to her.

What happened? He was trying to kill her and she doesn’t seem to have a big problem with that!?

From what I saw the two really liked each other and he found out that she is actually a cop and has to kill her.

But well, seems like he isn’t so motivated to do that and she has no problem with him trying to kill her.

Quite odd……. maybe I will watch both episodes one day, but this way it’s all quite confusing!

 

However, we do have a hot frogwoman getting chased by another diver, which is still a rare thing….so, after all, I enjoy this scene, even though it has some flaws.

In my version, they would have fought underwater and only one would have returned to the surface. 😉

Wanna know from which episode this is?

IMDB-link

IMDB lists that 2-parter as one episode, which is quite confusing… after all, that episode would then be 90 minutes long.

The evil frogwoman strikes yet again…. in a DIFFERENT TV show! [2 scenes]

Hah, slightly confused by that title? 😉

This is a very interesting case and I’m sure you will find it very interesting!

This time without preview pictures as the post contains 4 videos (2 of them new to this blog).

THANKS a lot to the guy who mentioned that episode of this show. I am quite surprised I didn’t hear about it earlier.

 

Remember this epic scene?

This was my post from 2013:

https://frogwoman.org/the-frogwoman-strikes-again

Now check out this scene, which can be found in another TV show made 4 years later:

Hmh, somehow it looks quite similar….even there are no underwater shots in this one and she makes it to the ladder before she gets drowned.

The attacker is basically not shown here except for the hand in rubber that grabs onto her ankle.

It’s rather odd that the evil frogwoman is able to pull her down with ONE arm while she has to fight her own buoyancy.

I mean the other woman has a solid stand on the ladder and is holding onto it with both arms.

Guess the evil frogwoman has exercised a lot 😉

 

But this was only the beginning….. 😉

Remember the ultimate highlight of that TV episode with the evil frogwoman?

My original post from back then:

https://frogwoman.org/female-divers-attacks-man-pulling-lake-quality-upgrade-longer-cut

Now check out this scene, which can also be found in that TV show made 4 years later:

Well…. quite odd! They re-used the complete underwater footage here!!!

The scenario is exactly the same. The detective (Ben Gazzara!) wants to meet with a woman only to be attacked by a mysterious frogwoman in rubber!

But there are some differences (despite the different actors):

Here we actually see some very short scenes of the evil frogwoman above the water.

In the original, they fight underwater and suddenly….cut….and he is in a hospital. One of the worst cuts in the history of humankind! ARGHHHHH!

In this “remake” we see him pulling the obviously defeated frogwoman to the shore, with her mouthpiece in his hand!

But then…. I start yelling at the screen! AGAIN, they don’t show the villainess anymore except for some seconds where she is already covered in a blanket.

How bizarre is that? Why have they shown only so little of her??? I would have loved to see the defeated frogwoman in her wet rubber suit on the surface! Just add a dialogue there and show her!

The murderer is finally caught and she just vanishes without saying a word!

DAMN! Really frustrates me big time! That and that the moment of him overpowering her underwater isn’t shown properly.

However the flaws, that ending… in both versions…. in one of my all-time favorites!

It’s such a unique scenario. An evil frogwoman in rubber who wants to drown a guy in this scene ….and already did drown a woman earlier in the episode!

How often do you get that in a TV show or movie? Spoiler-Alert….Basically NEVER! 😉

Ok, it’s hard to say if the diver who actually did the diving during filming is actually a woman….since the underwater picture is rather dark… or if they used a male diver to double for the villainess.

However it is supposed to be a woman, that is 100% clear.

So, why the same scenario and the same underwater footage?

These episodes are from different TV shows but are basically identical as the script is nearly a copy (some slight changes).

With some quick research, I found out that both TV shows were made by the same company (Roncom Films) for the same network (NBC).

The earlier show is from 1964 and the “remake” is from 1968.

So they “just” re-used footage that they shoot some years earlier.

Quite bizarre that they just remade an entire episode just some years later in a different TV show.

Don’t know why they did it, perhaps they were just lazy and recycled the script 😆

In the original, the villainess is the secretary of the guy who was in love with the drowned woman from the beginning of the episode.

Here is a picture of the villainous redhead from the original (Fiona Volpe vibes):

Really a shame she wasn’t shown on the surface in her rubbery frogwoman suit. 🙁

In the remake, she is his personal physical therapist (and less attractive)…but that is already one of the biggest changes from the original to the remake.

I guess you might wanna know now from which TV show that remake is?

An intense scuba figth to the death! [Imagine if…][Blog exclusive]

As promised I wanna show another scene from the same TV show as in the last post:

https://frogwoman.org/female-diver-gets-stuck-in-net-upgrade-post-longer-cut-better-quality

Out frogwoman who was stuck in the net in that post is in this video as well, but only short as this post isn’t really about her.

I just included her in the video so that you can see her again 😉

This post is rather from my “Imagine if…” series.

We have a pretty long and intense scuba fight with two frogmen. Damn, I wish there would be such a long scuba fight between two frogWOmen 😉

Check it out, I bet you will like it 😉

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

Here is the video:

Watch the video before you continue!

Wow, pretty much every way on how to kill an enemy diver is included in this fight…

They try to stab each other, strangle each other, a mask gets ripped off, kick each other, and try to kill the other one with rocks(!) and one tries to smash the other one’s head against rocks.

The scriptwriter was pretty creative for sure! Only a harpoon and a sliced air hose were missing 😉

And the way the good guy finishes the villain (actually Rutger Hauer!) is quite sinister.

I mean I never liked these inflatable vests, especially on frogwomen…. as they obscure the view, but is there no way to stop the inflation once the mechanism was “activated”?

Would like to know if such a “pull cord” had a safety mechanism or so…. I mean I can’t imagine that one unintentional pull on that thing would mean certain death if you are below a certain depth.

I mean, if an enemy diver can be killed with one pull on the inflation mechanism… it’s a very easy method.

Perhaps someone here can explain how these old inflatable vests worked and how “safe” they actually are. Seems like there were quite some potential risks with these vests.. at least regarding misuse.

Wanna know from which TV show this is?

IMDB-link

IMDB lists 13 episodes, to my knowledge the show has 6 episodes!?!

Seemingly the show was televised with different long episodes/formats (my guess).

This scene is in episode 6 of 6.

Frogwoman VS 5 male divers! [aka How to totally ruin a great setting]

A nice guy recommended me a movie:

“…. and it involves one female diver against 4 male divers. The female diver also surfaces and fights men on a boat.”

Well, for a moment I was really thrilled! A female diver fights against 4 male divers??? Or even 5 if I’m counting right… Sounds great, sounds awesome!

But then I thought…. well, why don’t I know that scene after 900 years of searching for such scenes? And I got a really bad feeling…. 😉

Here is a preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video from hell:

Well….. OH MY GOD!!! Or rather… WTF!!!

Ok, you have a frogwoman heroine and several evil divers…. and they actually do fight underwater…. and THIS is the result of the filming?

ARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!

I’m not sure if I should laugh my ass off or break down in tears…. or both.

A perfect example of how to totally ruin potential great scenes 🙁

Some folks (not me) are complaining that the scuba battles in Thunderball are too long and “slow” as the water slows down the action.

I also remember that the director of the Thunderball remake “Never say never again” was also no fan of underwater fights.

So, perhaps the director of this “movie” thought about how he could make these fights more intense and with more speed (in his opinion).

And his solution was seemingly to just increase the playback speed… of many action scenes (even on land).

Well, the result is laughably bad… in my opinion… and totally ruins these scenes.

The murky water is also a problem and they seemingly had no underwater lights at all…

In the end, I can’t enjoy these underwater fights at all and am really annoyed afterward.

The wetsuit of the frogwoman is uninteresting and very loose… I guess so the actress/stunt woman could do her martial arts moves. Quite a turn-off.

I’m 99% sure that these scenes were partially cut, as we don’t see the first two frogmen get hit by the spear, but well…. cut or not cut… all hope is lost here.

 

Oddly enough a german DVD of this “movie” is released in a few days for very little money, guess I will buy that one for the scuba collection as a perfect example on how to NOT do a scuba fight scene.

There are no more scuba scenes with her in this one.

Ok, let’s start with the bad news:

You won’t see any women in the video of this post.

So, why do I make a post about it?

I think this scene is a great “template” for a scuba fight with sexy female divers!

Check out the video, I’m very sure you will find it interesting….

 

I was browsing through some old footage that I had recorded a long time ago and stumbled on this scene.

And I managed to make a video file in good quality for you folks and myself.

And here is the video:

Well, now imagine that these divers would wear the same outfits…but… would actually be sexy frogWOmen!

They try to drown him and he fights back, struggling with the sexy rubberwomen underwater… 😉

Or imagine Mannix to be a female detective… whatever you like best.

The scuba gear is near perfection for me here. The black rubber wetsuit in combination with hoods and double hose regulators were always my favorite since …a certain movie 😉

And it would be so awesome to have sexy, evil frogwomen in such a scuba fight!

Ok, back to the scene:

Well, these two really screw up big time! They are two against one. They have a complete set of scuba gear, he has nothing at all, but manages to win the fight.

I guess they wanted to make it look like he drowned, otherwise they could have used their knives…. or they underestimated him.

However, it’s not so easy to pull down a buoyant body down, even they are two.

But they fail to control him so he can temporarily “throw” one frogman out of the fight and is able to fight against one.

I love how he rips off the complete hose from the first stage. Hard to say how realistic that is…. but I think it is possible…perhaps.

And he actually rips it off the intake port, which is on the right side of the tank/first stage. Air is streaming out of it….

Then they actually cheat as suddenly the hose is ripped off from the left side of the tank/first stage. Obviously, the air is free-flowing and the diver is losing air, but with this trick, he still can breathe, so the stunt diver is quite safe.

Seemingly the diver in the scene then immediately drowns, which is quite odd as he isn’t out of air for long and Mannix was underwater longer without air. He is never seen again afterward.

The second diver then finally grabs his knife to kill Mannix, but well… he loses the struggle with Mannix and also his knife to him.

All in all, I really like this scene as it’s a great template if you have a little fantasy…. 😉

 

P.S.: The same two divers actually kidnap a woman from a boat and force a scuba tank on her earlier in the episode!

But….tragically…. that story gets only told….not shown on the screen! DAMN IT!

This is the Mannix episode in which it happened:

A vintage frogwoman with a fake scuba tank gets attacked by a male diver! [Blog exclusive]

Time to finally post about this classic scene!

In the past, this was blocked immediately by Youtube (back in the early days of the blog) so I more or less forgot to make a post about it.

Here is a long cut of this scene in good video quality.

What I would give to have that scene in full colors…..

There are 4 seasons of this TV show. 3 of them were filmed in color. Sadly this is from the first season 🙁

However, I really love that scene despite some flaws!

Thankfully they had a female diver to play the role and didn’t use a male to play her action part as they often did in the 50s and 60s.

A really big minus point for me is how passive she is. But well, fits the time in which this was shot.

She basically does nothing. She doesn’t defend herself and she doesn’t attack him at any time! She did have quite some opportunities to attack him, but she is basically a Scubadoll in a rubber suit 😆

She just holds onto him while he is occupied with her tank harness, she could easily rip off his mask or rip out his regulator! Yes, she doesn’t have her scuba mask, but he is so close in front of her, that she should be able to see him well enough.

The fact that she doesn’t need her tank to breathe underwater is a minus point as well, but you can easily change that in your fantasy 😉

If I remember the backstory right she has the special ability to breathe underwater.

The bad guys are using her as a weapon to fight the submarine of the good guys. Her tank is actually an explosive device.

I love how the guy immediately goes for her mask to blind her (temporarily). He knows what he is doing.

It’s very rare to have an unmasked woman in such a scuba fight scene.

Her “unmasked” face looks quite sexy…

He has to get rid of her explosive “tank” and therefore he strips her of her scuba tank as well and thereby she also loses her regulator (that she needs in my fantasy).

The explosion hits her, and she is unconscious for the moment.

The naughty frogman takes ….advantage…. of that:

Damn, that stunt diver(?) really had a great time! I guess they had to repeat some of these scenes quite often 😆

I added the scene where she is unconscious and gets carried around in the submarine as that is quite sexy as well.

Again I played around with the simple tool to colorize one picture:

Yeah, not exactly a great result but at least better than the black and white version.

Pretty sure that is the Voit logo on his chest. Look like they used the same suits later on in Thunderball (different colors).

This episode actually aired earlier in the same year as Thunderball did (1965).

Wanna know from which episode this was?

Charlies Angels – Female scuba diver gets attacked… [UPGRADE – Hall of Fame]

This was one of the earliest posts on this blog back in 2013:

https://frogwoman.org/charlies-angels-female-scuba-diver-gets-attacked

 

And today it’s time to make a proper post with a FULL HD UPGRADE and proper text!

This one is an absolute classic …in my opinion…. and I will tell you why, but let’s start with some pictures first.

Preview, Scene 1:

(had problems with these scenes on Youtube in the past)

Watch the video before you continue!

So, you might guess why this one is a classic for me 😉

So, we have two beautiful women in nice vintage scuba gear! Ok, the BCD vests are kind of uncool…but at least they are only on the back.

The scuba fight is done pretty well, a nice struggle, she is occupied with controlling his knife hand as it’s the greatest threat to her.

They roll around nicely and finally, he manages to get his knife into position and slice her live-giving air hose!

It seems like they recorded the sound from her escaping air in a studio or so. Not 100% sure.

However, it sounds as sexy to me as it looks!

Lucky for her, he ….seemingly….. “just” wants to scare her off for the moment as he immediately swims away instead of holding her back at that depth.

Ok, hard to say in which depths they were… If they were deep enough he might have thought that she wouldn’t make it to the surface or wouldn’t survive an emergency ascend.

Also, the other Angel is there to rescue her by starting buddy breathing with her.

The sight of a sliced air hose spewing bubbles is quite something for me! 🙂

All in all, a very good scene that now finally gets into my Hall of Fame.

The end of the episode is also nice, as they look great with just their wetsuits on! Plus the nice Navy helicopter that reminds me of a certain movie with “some” scuba content 😉

But there is one more very interesting scuba scene in this episode!

This time three frogwomen are underwater and the bad guy is there again.

Time for a rematch!

Preview, scene 2:

And here is the video:

A good scene, but it seems a little….”lackluster” in the end.

One of them is charging him like a bull, and that without a scuba knife! (Why do the Angels haven’t got any knives?)

A very brave attack!

But then the two others join and the action gets very, very tame. They move slowly and a little “random”.

That scene could have used a better directing/script. It seems like they don’t fully know what to do here and there…..

The other two should have had a little more energy.

In my version, the frogwoman in yellow would fight with him.

The others would attack from behind and one would rip off his scuba mask and one would yank out his regulator.

But ok, in this version they have to escape the blast radius and he is staying back to get blown up 😉

I will watch the full episode today to get the full backstory behind it.

This scene is special as 3 frogwomen are fighting against one frogman, even though it’s a short and tame struggle. Quite unique nonetheless…I would say.

Wanna know from which episode these scenes are?

IMDB says it’s episode 4 of that season, my info is episode 3….however the episode title of the IMDB link is 100% correct.

Black Widow – Female diver runs out of air! – [Hall of Fame – UPGRADE]

(….not the movie with Scarlett Johansson 😉 )

Time to make another UPGRADE post with one of the best scuba peril scenes!

The old one had an SD video with about 4 minutes and basically no text.

Now I wanna present you with an HD video with over 7 minutes and a proper text alongside it!

If you don’t know these scenes already…I do envy you!

Let’s start with some preview pictures:

And here is the video:

(wasn’t welcome on Youtube in the past)

Damn, I love that scene! So thrilling, so sexy!

Actress Theresa Russell, here “Catharine, the villainess”, looks gorgeous. Those legs in that high-cut wetsuit top…. oh boy….

Even though, the damn BCD vests are annoying and are obscuring the view.

Debra Winger, here “Alexandra” does a great job here as well.

I love the moment where she realizes that she doesn’t get any air anymore (or very little) and desperately sucks on her regulator.

She checks her air supply, and the pressure gauge shows that she should have air left.

She should now check immediately for her buddy and then make an emergency ascend when she doesn’t see her.

She just grabs onto her mouthpiece and slowly ascends, but ok, she has no scuba experience… no wonder she behaves like that.

The struggle between the two is cut sometimes a little odd, but it’s very intense and very sexy for me.

I’m still not 100% sure if Alexandra pulls out her own regulator or if Catharine is yanking it out of Alexandra’s mouth.

Pretty sure it’s the latter, as we can see Catharine’s hand reaching for it, before the cut.

The moment as Alexandra is without her regulator and both are staring at each other…..is awesome! Her villainous eyes starring at her victim….

Catharine hesitates for a long moment before she finally gives her her regulator….. very interesting 😉

 

Some backstory for those who don’t know the movie (you should watch it):

Minor spoilers ahead!

Catharine has the habit of marrying rich guys who then mysteriously die under weird circumstances 😉

Alexandra works for the FBI and investigates.

The two become friends more or less.

Catharine finds out that Alexandra is working for the FBI…. before this scuba scene.

So, she manipulates Alexandra’s scuba gear (not shown) so she would run out of air before her pressure gauge would show that.

So, we can speculate a little on Catharine’s moves after Alexandra runs out of air.

I would say she tries to stop her from ascending as she wants to drown her to get rid of her.

Catharine then fights so that Alexandra can’t ascend. It’s hard to say how far they are down….perhaps Alexandra wouldn’t have a chance, hard to say.

In the magic moment as Alexandra is without her regulator I think Catharine is thinking about what to do.

I mean she is the one who still has air and Alexandra is about to drown quickly.

In my opinion, Alexandra has then a change of heart and gives Alexandra her life-giving regulator.

A decision that she might regret later on… 😉

After that Alexandra suspects that her scuba gear was manipulated….

One of my absolute favorites!

Great job by the sound department here as well. Love the sounds during the struggle 🙂

 

In my version, the finale of the movie would have been a scuba fight between the two…. a scuba fight to the death!

Here is a nice poster:

 

Here is the IMDB page of the movie:

IMDB-link

 

P.S.:

I don’t know how it was handled in the 80s, but nowadays two newly certified divers shouldn’t/wouldn’t go on a dive alone.

They would need an experienced diver on their side.

And they also should have been at the surface again with that kind of oxygen reserve…but ok…

A short anecdote about the first time I saw this movie:

I was on holiday on some Mediterranean island in the mid-’90s as a teenager and it was late and the TV in the hotel room was on.

You could see several German TV stations there.

And there I saw a trailer from a TV station for this movie several days before the airing.

And the scuba scene was shown there as well, ok, only bits of it….but these bits got me excited big time!

I couldn’t wait to see that movie…. back then, TV airings, cinemas, and VHS tapes were the only chance to see such scenes.

What do you think of that scene?
