This is a shameless promotion for a local sight which has already been used in several feature films. The Oregon Maritime Museum's Steamer PORTLAND was featured in several films, most notably Maverick. We have hilarious photos of how our old steam tug was converted into a frilly floating gambling casino. I was not here when it happened, but the museum retains a piece of two of the white and blue railing, and we have a small exhibit about it, and a much older film with Jimmy Stewart. Right now we would love to invite any local filmmaker to come on by and see what it's like to keep a boat - and the museum that owns it - running! Thanks for the chance to shine a light on a great local cultural resource. Susan Spitzer, volunteer and board member, Oregon Maritime Museum
