110W AN OCEAN LINER
TOSSED ABOUT ON LAND
Did you ever see an ocean linter
as a section of an ocean liner-tossed
about by a storm on dry land? Prob
ably not. The proposition sounds
foolish, doesnit it? Nevertheless, it
has been done-and in this wise:
Certain scenes in the William Far
numn d luxe production, "The lan
lilunter," are laid upon the deck of a
liner. In pre-war days 'Frank Lloyd,
director of the play, would have en
gaged a regular ocean-going vessel
for a day or two to make these
scenes; but with Uncle Sam taking
over everything that floats, Mr. Lloyd
was compelled to eIther build a deck
section of boat hinself Or leave it
out of the play. As it was an essen
tial part of tile )l'oduction h10 had no
alternative save to erect it. It was
a connecting link twith scenes ti:
bad beeni taken on ,board the coast
wise vessel The Governor on a trip
from Los Angeles to San Frnacie
Malany of these scenes on board The
Governor were made lin rather rough
weather. The vessel pitched and
tossed--and this broighti about tihe
problom of making the constructed
deck move. This iwns done In a novel
way; in faot it was a creation of
technical genius- and the effect was
there to the liiit. It was on this
(leek constructed oin land that Mr.
Marnuin had one or the several fierce
fights Ilp the picture; and -while the
flght was in pro:.-ress 75 men were
engaged In making the deck pitch for
ward and aft and from port to star
Expert Government shop officials
visited the William Fox lot In Holly
wood for the sole purpose of getting
a line on the coistruction of the rock
1ng motion for the (leck. The scenes
on this deck were taken at night and
a host of people took part in them.
"The Man Hlunter" will be shown
at the Opera louse Friday of this
