From the lost files of Perpetual comes this little asymmetrical deep space science vessel. Bristling with probes and sensors , this little ship maps space, galaxy’s and all it’s celestial  wonders. There is only a B&W of this one.

Tomorrow,  Saturday March 28th marks the 45th Anniversary of the Theatrical release of Warner brothers “The Incredible Henry Limpet” As a little kid I used to wait for this one to show on late night TV. KPHO the local Arizona Television station would show this one every so often on Saturday nights and it was always a treat to see. Once I even set my tape recorder by the TV speaker so I could record the whole movie,, A cheap kids way of getting a movies soundtrack back in the day. Anyways this was a childhood favorite full of everything a young boy could want, Battle ships, a shot of the YB-49 flying wing, Submarines, some cool animation and Characters, and the very funny antics of Don Knotts,,,,and I still love it today!  Before the films release back in 1964 Warner Brothers had a brilliant idea to have a gala premier for the film in Weeki Wachee State Park in Florida. Back in the day the park was owned and operated by ABC and housed an underground theater that had a wall of glass windows looking into a very large aquarium. This was home of the mermaid show where young girls dressed as mermaids would perform a beautifully choreographed underwater show. For the films premier the cast, press, film critics, an many locals came together to watch the film projected on a screen hanging in the tank where the film would be projected and viewed from the underwater windows. I saw pictures of the poor divers trying hang the canvas underwater and no matter how hard they tried to make a flat, tightly stretched screen, it looked like a giant corrugated curtain moving in an under water breeze. Those poor devils probably all got fired the next day! So with that said here are a collection of some images from the film.  Enjoy
