    Great story about Davidson DP! Glad you won that pretty boy over. The ribbed relic at Catalina was a 36' model made specifically for the tremendous Clark Gable/Charles Laughton 1935 version of โ€œMutiny, which was burned at Catalina. As for the ship used throughout the film she was formerly the Lily (laid down 1882), a two masted schooner that was refitted, re-ribbed, and re-rigged fore and aft as the fully rigged Bounty off of original admiralty plans! See pix below from a great ship archeological site. They sailed her to Tahiti and back. That version of the film won the best picture Oscar.

    Re The Mutiny on the Bounty box art: Some of this film was made at Catalina Island, in a place called Fisherman's Harbor, or Fish Harbor as we called it when I worked at the island. In the seventies, you could still see the remnants of the ribs of the Bounty from where she rested on the edge of the cove.. It was part of the lore of the Isthmus, Western end of the island. The Isthmus is also where Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood used to spend weekends until she mysteriously drowned one night! John Davidson used to anchor his yacht, Principia, far out from shore. I used to captain/drive the Salad Bowl for one summer and he was very paranoid about my seamanship and small boat handling skills, but I left nary a mark, I got his 2 bits, and his garbage and he was a happy movie star, stogie clamped in his teeth! The island is famous for it's Hollywood links for sure!

    Another Hollywood and model kit marriage; restored boxart from my stash. I like the film quite a bit, despite Brando's foppish over-the-top performance and Howard's awful hair and make-up. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Tim Conway was a genius. When Harvey Korman won his Emmy Award and Tim held his coat tails. Priceless!

    I still love the Carol Burnett show. Theres several sketches with Harvey Korman, a regular on the show, where he was obviously trying his best not to crack up. Tim Conway would wind him up!!๐Ÿคฃ
    Im no prude, but theres something refreshing about comedy with no cursing, sex or violence, just good fun.

    I had a look at the cast list as I thought I could see Tim Conway, and it was him.

    I loved him in the Carol Burnett Show, which for the "ignorant" was as good as the Morecambe and Wise show,
    The cast when talking (C.B.) said they would rehearse and Tim would tell his joke but when they went on air he told a different joke.
    Check out the "Elephant"joke it is in this sketch that "momma" ever said her first ad lib lines.

    My favourite sketch is the Dentist one with Tim Conway as the dentist. The guy in the chair said afterwards he actually wet himself laughing!
