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. 🙂
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 😉
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?
