Ted, Thanks for the info on the STEAMBOAT ROUND THE BEND movie. How well I remember those showings of it in the Orleans Room, when more time was spent "repairing it" than actually viewing it! I know there was controversy over the years about whether or not the DQ was actually one of the boats in the movie. I know that there were some photos in one issue of the S&D REFLECTOR showing one of the boats in ruins. It's a great movie and has some hilarious scenes with the one boat belching flame, due to bottles of Pocahontas Medicine being thrown into the furnaces to generate steam. We'll have to keep that in mind this spring when the BELLE and DQ meet again for their race!!!
