Scuba diving movie list

Postby koimaster » December 28th 2014, 1:29pm

Here is a list of movies with diving content (divers in the water) this is primarily a list of Hollywood drama type films, a few documentaries of note are included. I have not included any Cousteau related films due to his filthy and traitorous betrayal of his military oath to his country and his support of nazis. There was at least one more tv series with divers in the 50-60 era but cannot find anything on it. There was also flipper

I watched Jaws again not too long ago; I'd forgotten what a superb men-against-the-sea story it truly was. I know a lot of people (including me, sometimes) deride Spielberg as a sell-out douchebag, but that picture has become a well-deserved classic.

Just to even things out--for members here who might prefer a bear--here's a semi-beefcake pic of Robert Shaw from the same movie (he wisely opted for wearing a shirt and slacks in his diving scenes):

And well deserved, too. Some of the young shavers on the forum might not realize it, but back then, if you wanted jack-off material, your options were pretty thin. There was no high-speed interent, which, along with bringing a wealth of information to All Nations of the Earth, also (more importantly) provides Keisha Grey getting bungholed by Ron Jeremy in streaming HD video.

Back in the Olde Dayes, we had boobies in Playboy magazine, a few beaver shots in Hustler and, more artfully done, Penthouse. Certainly there were a few guys who had super-8 film projectors in their dens, but any sort of meaningful porn was restricted to revolting, Clorox-smelling theaters in down-market areas of big cities.

I recall going to see The Deep with a couple of pals, and the wonder of seeing Jackie Bisset's superb breasts in a wet T-shirt, bobbing in the glories of the Oceanic World. Indeed, it was a totally forgettable film (apart from Lous Gossett Jr. getting his head squashed by a giant eel), but at the age of 16 or 17, it kept me stiff as a piece rebar for weeks afterwards.
