So, I was re-watching Halloween III this past weekend and was surprised and pleased to see that some Frank Bowers paintings have a cameo in the film.

Check it out -

(you have to scroll a bit).
The Buccaneer was used as a location in the movie.

Frank Bowers in film, nice!

I found an image of a postcard from Vivian Laird's restaurant and it confirms that there was a mural in the restaurant. It must have been a Frank Bowers.

That's some cool place Daddy-O, just the setup for a full swing band.
put on the best suit and order up a cocktail.

John O - Many here have wanted the powers of the Esper Machine, but alas have found no avail in these current times. Instead, we search onward for an original and a close up scan.

Cool Painting, I like that one a lot.
But so Not Tiki.
when is this thread getting moved to beyond Tiki?

why is it ok for you to be a old Curmudgeon before your time,
but not me?

I call bias on this one, because you like it, and have participated in it.

Get OFF it already, Jeff! If you would study this thread you would see that this artist has been involved in numerous Tiki and exotic bar projects, with his Polynesian murals being reproduced on post cards, menus and matchbooks. With that, his whole body of work and his life are quite relevant to Tiki research!

Your Surf music post got moved not because it was deemed "not Tiki", but because it clearly belonged into "Tiki Music", not "General Tiki"!

Can we then maybe "try" to post more of his "tiki" related works then?

Or is that asking too much?
