It was eighty years ago, while GERTUDE L THEBAUD was racing BLUENOSE in the International Fishermen’s Races, that a photo of Sterling Hayden, navigator on THEBAUD, appeared in the Boston Post.  So many women swooned that Hollywood noticed, brought him to the screen, and then, in 1964, cast him as Jack D Ripper in Dr. Strangelove.

One never knows who’s eyeing Good Morning Gloucester.
