I am sure we are all aware of the movie "DEVIL BOATS" a WARNER film with Warren Douglas. I have the film on 16mm and of course on DVD. I often wondered if the movie made it around American Theaters or not. I have an original photo of the film playing in Bayonne, New Jersey at the Dewitt Theater. In fact this was the showing that had most of the Elco workers and dignitaries at this showing. I just picked up an original ad for the movie ( which is very hard to obtain) so I am wondering if the movie made it around or not. The ad says you can even purchase a poster of the movie, but in all my years being involved with PT BOATS, I have never seen one. I ad also says the movie was in color, but I have never seen a color version of this film, just black and white. If anyone has a color version or has any information on this film, not to mention a poster, please contact me.......................

I've always wondered why "Devil Boats" isn't available, or wasn't preserved in, the Technicolor it was filmed in...

Thanks Charlie, I just contacted that company. When I do my PT BOAT lectures, it would be nice to show the film in color. I usually use the black and white version, or I run Giant Killers.........
