Tell-No-Tales Thursdays: Captain’s Bar
Here’s another favorite scene: the Captain’s Bar, shown in an original publicity image from the early days. I always enjoyed the effect of the skeletons drinking and being able to see the booze go down their skeletal frame. Be sure to notice the Marc Davis painting above the bar—a true classic. The redhead in the painting looks like she could be seeing the Peggy Lee song, "Is That All There Is?” This first photo is from October 1995.
And for a little exercise in compare and contrast, check out the Marc Davis painting and how even in the period of one month, it has degraded further with what appears to be and extra streak of bird poop! Or maybe a little tobacco spit?
As an added bonus, here is the warning sign posted at the exit no less...most likely since it also doubles as the handicapped entrance.
