The frogwoman, a kangaroo and sharks!

Time to make a 2nd post with scenes from a 60s TV show with an animal as the lead “actor”.

Now, not that one with the dolphin, the one with the kangaroo.

In this one world-famous diver, Valerie Taylor can be seen in one out of only 3 acting roles (movie/TV shows).

And here is the video:

Initially, I wanted to cut down the video as it is now half the length of the full episode.

But well, I wanted to include all her wetsuit scenes so I decided to choose the first long cut as the video. And Youtube seemingly doesn’t mind in this case.

Certainly some nice and interesting scenes with Valerie Taylor in a wetsuit for half an episode. πŸ™‚

Well, I would have preferred a black rubber wetsuit, but no luck.

From today’s point of view, it is certainly quite ironic that Valerie Taylor who made many documentaries about sharks and was very unhappy in her involvement in the making of “Jaws” swims away in fear from a harmless shark….but well, times were different and most people were very afraid of any shark.

The peril element here is a nice addition if that means she is unconscious for the rest of the episode…which is quite odd. I mean why didn’t they show her awake at the end?

The young boy then saved her from drowning and then had some close scenes with Valerie Taylor in her tight, wet wetsuit on that boat…. I wouldn’t mind swapping with him πŸ˜‰

Most likely he was too young back then to “appreciate” it.

Wanna know from which episode this is?

IMDB says it was episode 18 of that season, other sources say it’s 19, but the title is certainly correct.

What do you think of that episode?

An astronaut goes….DIVING! [2 videos + a BONUS video]

In these videos, you will see something that you won’t see that often….a female astronaut that dives! And also a female safety diver as a bonus!

I watched this new movie with french audio and English subtitles.

They speak French, English, German and Russian in that movie. 4 languages in one movie…that was new to me.

I do understand English, German, and a little french, but unfortunately, the scenes where they speak Russian were only translated in hardcoded french subtitles like in the videos below.

Looking forward to seeing a version in one language without any subtitles πŸ˜†

Let’s start with the first underwater scene of the movie!

And here is the video:

Well, her task is obviously to get her male buddy in that capsule in a short time, while he is (playing) unconscious.

Quite a good scene! In her spacesuit, she is very much restricted and can’t move around like a scuba diver. But she gets the job done just in time!

And this was just the first scene….there is another one with some….peril!

Scene 2

And here is the video:

Quite a nice peril scene!

Eva Green is a great actress and looks great as an astronaut!

Actually, I’m not sure why she passed out. Was something wrong with the oxygen supply? Was it part of the training? Or was she just overworked and tired?

Of course with all the safety divers, she wasn’t in real danger here.

However an effective training for astronauts to simulate some situations that could happen in space.

This video gave me an idea for a perilous scenario for an underwater fight:

Imagine that there would be only one safety diver (female). That diver wants to drown the astronaut for some reason! They fight underwater!

The diver looks for a way to sabotage the oxygen supply or to cut her suit open….while the astronaut tries to fight back with some training gear.

Another scenario that needs to be filmed!!!

Exclusively on the blog, here is a bonus scene from the movie:

Quite a nice scene.

Always nice to see a woman using an oxygen mask (or gas mask)!

This is the movie (by the way…Eva Green presents her “twins” several times during the movie…):

P.S.:

In 4 days I will get the german Blu-ray of Breaking surface!

Looking forward to it BIG time! πŸ™‚

Will post about it next week….

 

 

The female record-pilot and her deadly mistake(?) [oxygen mask]

Yeah, I know, this post isn’t about scuba diving at all…but from time to time I like to post about other breathing devices too.

The movie to which these scenes belong is by far the oldest which I ever posted about…it’s from 1933!

The chances are big I never would have stumbled upon this one if not a friendly user had recommended it to me.

I watched the whole movie and this scene was the dramatic finale!

It’s important to know the story behind it:

A woman becomes a pilot in an era where women weren’t “supposed” like that. She gets into an affair with a married man and ends badly.

She thinks about him as she tries to get the world record flight altitude title.

And here is the video:

Well, that happens when you are without oxygen for too long…..

She was thinking about the tragic love of her life and pulled off her oxygen mask perhaps without thinking about the danger.

I love that moment as she realizes how badly she needs her oxygen mask again.

Hastily she tries to get it back on, but too late….she gets unconscious and the plan gets out of control.

The actress is actually is Katharine Hepburn who was 26 when this movie came out!

Ok, hard to say how realistic that scene is, as she is only without oxygen for some moments. I think it might actually take a bit longer from what I read.

However, this peril scene is quite unique! Never saw that type of oxygen mask and a woman passing out in such a scene…. that’s certainly something new for me!

And the moment from which she realizes her error until she tries hastily to get her mask back on….that’s quite thrilling for me. It seems that for a second she forgot where her oxygen mask is. Hard to say if that was in the script or not.

However, she is in great distress as she tries to get the mask back on.

 

*EDIT*

A second theory is that she wanted to kill herself. She had some seconds thought about it….but too late……

This is the movie title:

Pamela Anderson, a guy and a mermaid [female Baywatch Scuba scenes in HD #11]

This will be a massive post with 3 videos! This episode has so much to offer πŸ™‚

Since YouTube has an allergy to Baywatch videos for over 5 minutes (it seems), I made 3 single videos.

 

Scene 1 (Bonus – not on my public Youtube channel):

One of the Baywatch guys wants to practice freediving and Pamela Anderson (CJ) and Yasmine Bleeth (Caroline Holden) are helping him. And, no surprise, they look fantastic while doing so!

And here is the video:

Ok, not female scuba, BUT this was only the warm-up!

 

Scene 2:

The guy wants to find that mermaid! And stays down for so long that Pam puts on her scuba gear to find him.

Preview:

And here is the video:

It is funny/ridiculous that they made no effort at all to hide the fact that Pamela Anderson actually doesn’t dive! Her stunt diver may be really beautiful, showing her that long, everyone (should) see that isn’t Pamela.

However, seeing Pamela Anderson in a bikini and then her stunt diver in action….is always a good thing πŸ˜‰

 

Scene 3 (the highlight of the episode):

Now Pamela wants to find the mermaid. She puts on scuba gear and soon is in real big trouble!

Preview:

And here is the video:

Well, the scene is pretty hilarious!

  1. It’s rather helpful to look in the direction that you are swimming/diving. Especially when you are near some rocks… πŸ˜‰

2. She didn’t lose her regulator as she crashed onto the rocks, it remains clearly in her mouth. She is unconscious. As the mermaid arrives the regulator is out of her mouth….Why?

On the good side ….it leads to a really good scuba peril scene. The way she looks when the mermaid pulls her up….. HOT!

So, it is a highlight for me…and I am sure…for others as well πŸ˜‰

This is the episode with all these 3 scenes:

In pursuit of a frogwoman!

Well, this little gem has quite a lot to offer! Not only that the filmmakers stole a LOT of music from the Bond movies πŸ˜€  (unbelievably that that worked out)…. it has a frogwoman that gets chased on land and underwater! Can she escape the bad guys?

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Well….that was…odd! We have incompetent henchmen in the plane (who can’t hit her) and more incompetent henchmen underwater, who can’t hit her with spearguns …or catch up with her.

But if they are not able to kill her….she nearly does it herself πŸ˜†

But creative….to escape a plan she packs out her scuba gear. And what happens to the frogmen who are not in the sub? Really odd.

However the chase is pretty cool, something you don’t get to see that often. And the footage where she is unconscious underwater due to the explosion….great scuba peril!

Wanna know the movie from which this was taken?

Nobody besides me will see the mail address you will provide, and it can be β€œmade up”.

With a real one you get noticed about other comments….but you can check that manually.

The frogwoman, her frogman and the underwater explosion – part 1

Another clip you folks. A nice user reminded me of this movie. I have it in my DVD/Bluray collection but never posted something from it here on this blog.

And this movie offers a lot of scuba scenes! And we have 2 frogwomen with solid parts as well…. πŸ™‚

I left dialogues between the scuba scenes in the clip…otherwise it would be hard to understand why things happen the way they do.

And here is the video:

This frogwoman sees a lot of action!

More scenes from that movie may appear….

Right now, I won’t reveal the title of the movie. Stay tuned!
