  1. She looks suspiciously like a Miltary Nurse … Navy? since it’s a wharf/waterfront scene. Check the shoes, stockings, the sleeve cuff and the buttons on the dress … Nurse in Uniform. Ergo, “Nurse, I think I feel my ‘temperature’ rising.” Or, “Hmmm…think I’ll ‘re-up.'”

  2. It’s hard to imagine something of such a huge proportion was made of that. Is it in a place where you can usually only see it from very far away?
    And I love the referenced photograph.
    As for the sightseer, I just finished a chapter in Sterling Hayden’s “Wanderer” when he describes his five year old self in love with the babysitter and skooting across the livingroom rug on his stomach to get in a just so position to review the mysteries hidden in the girl’s crossed thighs, on the couch, reading her book….

    • The statue is right out in the midst of a park, close to another sculptural group of Bob Hope entertaining a bunch of wounded vets (missing limbs, etc.) And yes, I remember that scene in Hayden’s book. Thanks…

    • Thanks, Bruce. Here’s a blurb about the book from Amazon:

      Since its publication in 1963, Sterling Hayden’s autobiography, Wanderer, has been surrounded by controversy. The author was at the peak of his earning power as a movie star when he suddenly quit. He walked out on Hollywood, walked out of a shattered marriage, defied the courts, broke as an outlaw, set sail with his four children in the schooner Wanderer–bound for the South Seas. His attempt to escape launched his autobiography. It is the candid, sometimes painfully revealing confession of a man who scrutinized his every self-defeat and self-betrayal in the unblinking light of conscience.
