Tell-No-Tales Thursdays: Auction Onlookers at the Cantina
This fun-loving and drunken group of men is watching the Wench Auction from across the water. Here’s two close-ups of the same blokes at the Cantina:
Here’s another one from the cheapseats; these drunken pirates just can’t get enough of the Red-Headed Wench. Or maybe the Old Maids is what they fancy.
As you go under the bridge from the Auction Scene, you are leered at by 2 drunken pirates. Here they are from a vintage publicity shot:
And some recent closeups:
With beard and without; and the blindness apparently goes back and forth between the two eyes. Follow the bouncing patch!
As I was going through my daily viewing of Disney-related sites/blogs, I saw this AMAZING 1956 16mm footage from this site, viemo.com/6016945 that John Frost over at The Disney Blog linked to; Walt Disney himself is featured in this footage from Jeff Altman's grandfather. It is probably the clearest home-movie footage of the park that I have seen. Jeff has been trying to figure out what Walt and crew were trying to film at the time. Anyone know the answer?
See more Pirates of the Caribbean (both recent and vintage) photos at my website.
