Once in a great while you will see an interesting boat in a movie. The start of a continuing series.
In The Talented Mr. Ripley (links: book, movie), Tom Ripley is a poor ‘nobody’ who wishes he were the rich and handsome Dickie Greenleaf. Dickie’s father lives on Park Avenue, and owns a boatyard. Frankly, I’d be happy just having Dickie’s boat, seen here. The setting is Italy in the early ’50s, the boat could be an S&S design, except perhaps for the smallish transom. Can anyone tell me?
Tom spies Dickie’s boat from the beach, through binoculars.
Dickie and Marge swim from their mooring to the beach.
Two (too brief) scenes of daysailing.
The big skiff with the little, unruly outboard (a Seagull, perchance?) in which Dickie meets his undeserved end.
