Tropical Affairs: Anna and the King

Robert Raymer in Anna and the King

Here's a better look at those fake sideburns from Tropical Affairs, "The Crocodile and I". This shot is on the set for Anna and the King for the opening port scene, a converted Swettenham Pier in Penang to make it look like old Siam. Notice the ship at right. It's a fake facade attached to an ordinary yacht -- realistic isn't it? As realistic as those sideburns of mine.
