20,000 Bikinis Under the Sea

Norman Maurer (writer)

Hollywood: Self published, 1960s. Treatment script for an unproduced film called "20,000 Bikinis Under the Sea." Maurer rose to some popularity after his brief stint as a comic book artist, notably for "Three Stooges" titles and the first 3-D comics, "Three-Dimension Comics," featuring Mighty Mouse. He also married Joan Howard, daughter of Stooge Moe Howard, and this association led him to managing the Stooges after their contract with Columbia, producing seven Stooge films as well as the television series, "The New 3 Stooges" (1965).

An interesting take on beach party phase during the 1960s, where an inventor develops a sustainable way to live underwater. He eats, drinks, and gets married, all underwater.
