I found the images below on the internet some time ago and though since there has been discussion of the movie from time to time and just recently, the board might appreciated see them. The following are MGM production sketches from the movie THEY WERE EXPENDABLE.

Frank,

You're welcome, and...I sent those to Dick, who posted them for us, as I'm not too good at doing so myself yet.

Interesting to note the artist included 20mm's with armor shields on the sterns of the boats in the sketches...probably before the movie company found that the Ron 3 boats in the Philipines didn't have them...

Nice find Drew, I love that movie. I did a search and found a site with them. Frank, I don't know if these people can help higher resolution scans: http://www.artdirectors.org/?art=expendable_2.

Interesting find, Jeff.

The Art Director's Guild site was not the site I had found those sketches on originally -- it was a site about old movies, can't remember which one or where.

I'm sure MGM and the Art Director's Guild are OK with this, since we're a historical, non-profit PT Boat site!
