Subject: More Steamboat Celebrities


Another celebrity name to add to the steamboat list is Olivia de Haveland. One year the company scheduled a “Movie Cruise” for the Delta Queen and a “Big Band” cruise for the MQ. It was early in the season and bookings were low on the DQ (especially since the company was trying to channel most people to the MQ) so they canceled the DQ and combined both cruises to the MQ. What a bargain for the passengers! Some of the DQ crew like myself and cruise Director, Terry Severns, were put on the MQ to help host the movie people. Terry and I shared the duties of hosting Ms. de Haveland who was a most gracious lady as most big celebrities are. It was a pleasure and I even got a paycheck. Ms. de Haveland was traveling alone and she wanted one of us to be with her for public appearances. She was the only living leading character from “Gone With The Wind” and of course we showed the film. Now for the name dropping part. I got to sit next to Olivia de Haveland while watching “GWTW” and sharing popcorn with her. The passengers loved her.
