Tell-No-Tales Thursdays: Mystery Initials/Acronym
The Auction scene is one of my favorites, and one that I have photographed many many times. Still, it wasn't until I saw a recent post on Micechat that I noticed the small wording on this sign posted behind the Red-Headed Wench. This detail shot shows you what I am talking about; this sign has existed since these concept models were produced.
In this early publicity still, you can see that P.B.S. of A. made it into the actual attraction, too.
Even today, although the actual flyer itself has changed, the message hasn't.
Anybody know what P.B.S. of A. stands for? Here are a few reader suggestions: Pirates Benevolent Society of America, Pirate's Bevevolent Society of Anaheim, PBS Station in Anaheim, and Pirate Bride Sellers of America. See more Pirates of the Caribbean photos at my regular website.
In DVD news, “Pete’s Dragon” will be available in a New Special Edition on 8/18. I watched this movie for the first time and was impressed by the live-action/animation combination. Although it may seem primitive today, knowing that this was created without computers is VERY impressive. Although somewhat predictable, it is a very heartwarming tale with an all-star cast. Sean Marshall as Pete is totally natural and endearing as well. And Helen Reddy...what a talent! Order it now at Amazon.com.
