That photo of Bob Crow in the picture Bigbro posted from the lobby of Mr. C's....



came from a Life Magazine piece from when Crow went to England to buy the Queen Mary for Long Beach.




The image was also used in an ad for the restaurant.



Bob Crow also owned a Chinese restaurant called Crow's.

Wow...I didn't know that! I wonder if the Helen Dell mentioned in the ad was the same Helen Dell that was the organist at Dodger Stadium back in the day?

Sharp observation A-Frame. That is the same Helen Dell at the organ. She played several clubs in the area before joining the Dodgers in 1972.

And here's Bob Crow in 1962 with the new plans for the Mr. C's restaurant!

I found this photo of the Long Beach Ladies Auxiliary group standing at the entrance to the Lanai Room at Mr. C's.

I found another newspaper photo of the great Mr. C's A-Frame and gong sign (with another reference to Pacificana).



And, a few more photos of Madam Pele who apparently weighed in at 1,800 pounds.





Mr. C and the Duke.



Some native artifacts.

I was sent this photo which is suppose to be a tiki torch still standing today from when the location was Mr. C's (which is now the Brazilian eatery Green Field Churrascaria).

I wanted to just post and thank everyone for all of the information regarding the Outrigger Inn and Mr C's. Prior to 1975, my grandfather owned this property and my father ran it for many years. I showed my father all of the photos of the property and memorabilia and he got a real kick out of it. He also mentioned that there is only one video available today that shows the hotel, pool and the inside of Mr C's. The property was used for a movie called, "The Girl Who Knew Too Much" with Adam West, Nancy Kwan. It was amazing to watch and the clips reminded me of when I use to play at the pool when I was a kid.

Anyway, thanks again and I'll drop by here periodically for updates.
