First, I should tell you that the movie, Chatham is a comedy about three ship captains based on a novel by Joseph Lincoln, called Cap'n Eri. I don't want to spoil the story, so I'll just tell you that they find themselves with a mess, and they send away for a mail-order-bride. The movie stars David Carradine, Rip Torn, Bruce Dern, and Mariel Hemmingway. I met another character who was filming on set of the Hindu with David Carradine, named Russell who is from Wellfleet, MA.
The Hindu has such an interesting history that the captain, Kevin Foley, and I have agreed to get together and compile a piece of literature to tell her story. As we work on that, I will share some interesting facts with you.
Continuation from Part I:
The next day, Friday, I was really rather busy and no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't make it to the docks. I finally made it there at 4 P.M. when I pulled up, I was so surprised to see the parking lot full of trailers, moving trucks, and film equipment. I hurried on over to join Captain Kevin to watch the filming of the movie. It was a lucky break.
The following are some of the pictures I shot :
The Lot was blocked off.
Filming from above:
The specail effects guy told me that they were going to use the Hindu in a scene where it appeared shipwrecked.
That is why the ship appears tilted in this scene.
Here is Carradine on the Hindu
Carradine with Camera
He takes pictures of his family here in front of the Hindu. I have a shot of this. If I go to the party on Saturday, I will give it to him. I don't think it's ethical to put shots up like that for public viewing.
Then Bruce Dern arrives. Here he is talking to Carradine
The computer is acting a bit funny so I'm going to post the last pictures on Part III - sorry
