    Wonderful movie. I recognized 5-yr old Larry Steimle with the sail boat trophy, the dug-out canoe (now in a museum…without the dragon’s head), and I think the wooden dingy and a canvass canoe. Catalina Island didn’t appear to change much from ’41 to ’82 when I visited. Wish I was near the water!

    Amazing! I wish we could have gone there. Sometime we need to go out to Catalina Island.

    What a great video. Thank you so much for preserving and making that available. I now understand where my love of the ocean comes from!

    Johnny Sheffield (April 11, 1931 – October 15, 2010) was an American child actor

    Interesting Peter that your entry was made on the very day that Johnny Sheffield died. He attended Sail Ho! Balboa and played the son of Tarzan in 8 movies starting in 1939.
