Frank Quan's mother, Grace, reportedly smoked cigars, spoke salty words, and was said to have gotten along f-a-m-o-u-s-l-y with John Wayne when "Blood Alley" was filmed here at China Camp in 1954.   (source: ibid)

The big guy on the right is John Wayne, who with Lauren Baccal made the 1955 Hollywood blockbuster; "Blood Alley", using the rustic features of China Camp Village.   CLICK for YouTube "Blood Alley" movie trailer.

So, yes, Namastenancy, I've been keeping my eyes open for glamorous female spies and/or Lauren Baccal near the end of that pier for a while now, but without much luck. Plots abound but lurking at piers is dangerous work.
Yesterday, Namastenancy, said...
Your header today is like something out of film noir. I expect Bogart to land and immediately go undercover, aided by some glamorous female spy. Or shades of "The Maltese Falcon."

Okay, okay, I realize that not everybody has $30 to shell out for a book, no matter how much they might want to support me and my work, so for the next 16 days I will be showing images from the book 2 at a time. You can also see exactly what the book looks like in a preview from MagCloud, the publisher, and you can also visit my website, to see the images displayed as an exhibit without the book formatting and more info on how to place your order.
