Doris Day enters the world of rocketry and espionage in The Glass Bottom Boat, an expensively-mounted production given frequently to sight gags and frenzied comedy performances.

Star plays a conscientious public relations staffer in a space laboratory where Rod Taylor, the engineering genius heading the facility, has invented a device both the US government and the Soviets want. He falls for her and to keep her always by his side invents the idea of having her write a very definitive biography of him. She becomes a spy suspect because she has a dog named Vladimir, which she’s always calling on the telephone so its ringing will give her pet exercise when she isn’t there, and because she follows a standing order that every bit of paper should be burned.

Arthur Godfrey scores strongly as her father, operator of a glass-bottom sightseeing boat at Catalina. Taylor lends his usual masculine presence effectively, both as the inventor and romantic vis-a-vis.
