ORIGINAL SEAVIEW SPEAKER #02
Very Cool! Authentic and Original OPERATING SUB SPEAKER from
the SEAVIEW SUB in IRWIN ALLEN'S HIT MOVIE AND TV SERIES,
VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA (1964-1968). Material came
directly from Si Simonson, Old-Time Efx Man on the show. Big
speaker is 12 inches wide. It is wired from behind. I am not
sure exactly how speakers work - but this does appear to be
wired to activate. Overall condition is Fine - which is not
bad for this piece considering it still exists! SHOWS WALTER
PIGEON SLAPPING FRANKIE AVALON. THE LOUDSPEAKER CAN CLEARLY
BE SEEN ABOVE THEIR HEADS ON THE WALL.
This is a moment from the movie - but the same sets were
utilized in the subsequent TV show. Quite a nice example of
the old school special efx technology. It appears, if you
have the interest, that with a bit of tweaking and repair,
that this could become a truly marvelous - and working - display
piece. This is a rare item - How much of the Seaview can still
be in existence?
PLEASE NOTE - THIS IS NOT A REPRODUCTION! This is an original
and authentic item from the Effects Man on the series. Comes with
COA from THE MUSEUM OF MOM AND POP CULTURE.
