Ugh, I Have Met Age, And It Sucks! I Have A Snap Shot To Prove It!
It’s official, I have lost it all, my manhood and teen hormones are officially dead. While on my ebay daily search, I noticed this snap shot for sale. Actress or Model, Rosemarie Frankland. But I noticed the photo for a less obvious reason. Is that a 1960 Chris Craft Ski boat with an optional top? Really? I am looking at her top! The boats top! You have to be kidding me. Counting snaps, and all. I am disgusted with my self. I might as well, go straight to the slaughter house and turn myself into glue. Now, of course I had to google Miss Frankland, and guess what? Yah yeah she likes a bikini and Bob Hope may have..well you know.. Counted her snaps… for years
It also appears that this was a promo shoot for a film called I’ll Take Sweden, with Frankie Avalon and Bob Hope, and if you look around. You will see other shots form that day. And here is the promo for the movie. Maybe I am like Bob, after all.
Matt, you are ok! Need to remember that Rosemarie, while a looker in her day, no longer looks like that. The boat, if properly maintained, still could. So don’t check out just yet. Boating is a sport, correct? The Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue is out. So why no current Rosemarie in the issue on a beautiful mahogany boat? I’ll volunteer my boat. How does one get the job of painting the bathing suit on some of the models? Do you get paid to do that?
Remember the our boat wear nothing but a paint job just like those swimsuit models.
Wouldn’t the three color seats make it a 1961 ski boat?
I think it’s a ’61 also because of the interior.
Your right its a 61! And its official, I am not alone! HA. BTW, sadly she passed away at the young age of 52.
You guys can all have Sweden, the girl AND the boat! Me? I’ll take the three early ’60’s electric guitars in the still shot. Pure gold!
They must be real collector’s items…cordless electric guitars!
You always have had a thing for snaps and zippers!
I am more interested in the thread count and stitch count on those bikinis! Wonder where you could find a vintage bikini like that.
I think we should restage that whole dancing on the deck shot at Tavares….I nominate Mfine for the Frankie part…..
woodyboatress’ part is easy to cast.
John in Va.
That’s Lake Arrowhead
Gibson 335, Fender Jazzmaster, and Fender Jaguar? A nice collection, but I’d take the boat.
As for recreating the shot, can we hold off until 2017? I am not going to make it this year and I am going to need all 13 months in the gym before I am ready.
Was all this triggered when you received your Sports Illustrated Swim Suit edition? I can’t imagine a remake of this movie????
Tack sa mycket. Jag tycke en Sverige. Svenska flicka det mycket bra.
I would recognize that interior anywhere. ’61 Chris Craft…
Matt…I’m concerned about your condition so I created a test for you. Zoom in on the boat way in the background, then glance down and a little to the right. Then report back.
Nice running lights.
Here’s a sad obit but it outlines her life including being Miss World in 1961. She also married Warren Entner of The Grass Roots. She had quite a colorful life, short as it was.
