Someone had sent me that picture a long time ago and I too felt the same way. It really looks like an Elco during the period. Great shot though...

It's a big 'un, all right...

I seem to remember seeing a photo of Robertson with (I think) Rose Kennedy at the premiere of the film, and Robertson was holding one of the Revell 1/72nd scale PT 109 models...

Nah, Frank. It really is in my garage. I built the boat (obviously NOT the 109) and Warner Brothers trashed it on their round-the-US promo tour when the movie opened. I still havn't got around to restoring it....
