    Of course, a much, much larger model was used as the actual tanker, courtesy of the late great Derek Meddings and his team.

    As Joachim Fuchsberger, Nigel Green and Howard Marion-Crawford listen to the latest threat from the master criminal in The Face of Fu Manchu (1965), they understandably don't notice the ship on the window ledge.

    Bedtime, though not nautical, stories from Lana Turner for lucky Martin Stephens, which was Another Time, Another Place (1958).

    And wow, full-sized images to boot! :D

    In DARLING, when Robert Gold (Bogarde) interviews Walter Southgate (Hugo Dyson), there is a ship in a case in the background. Dim, but it's there.Click image for larger version

    Vice Admiral Moultrie Kelsall hasn't noticed the model behind him as he checks his script for Hell Boats (1969):

    He needn't have bothered, though, as he's dubbed throughout.

    Having vacated Jamaica Inn (1939), Charles Laughton is more concerned with histrionics than observing the model behind him or, good heavens, Maureen O'Hara on the floor in front of him:

    First reference I've seen to Poitier in this movie and definitely an amazing (jawdropping?) pic!

    He recalls it is an important part of his producer Harry Alan Towers' film The Brides of Fu Manchu (1966).

    Sidney Poitier's vessel will never get him through the two hours of the film, especially with a hairdo like that.

    Margaret Rutherford passes Roland Culver some cress sandwiches as a sailing ship passes by in the background when there's English Without Tears in 1944. I have a feeling that model has popped up before.
