    Good morning to All,

    I am hoping someone from the west coast and real Universal studios will know this?

    Is the stern wheeler Cotton Blossom from the movie *SHOWBOAT*, still at the studio lake?

    Thanks for any infomation you may have

    No it's gone. The Red Sea portion of Park Lake features the bigatures used in Peter Jackson's King Kong remake. Just behind the set backdrop is the crumbling Sweet Charity Bridge.

      Thanks for your help!

      I know the new stuff is what brings folks in, but its a shame so much of the old hollywood stuff gets removed!

      Thanks Again!

        What's left of the Sweet Charity Bridge. The bridge is behind a chain link fence more than likely condemned.

          IIRC, the sternwheeler itself used to be in the section of the lake across from the underwater filming tank near the Little Europe/Six Points Texas area of the tour. Around 1990 it started falling apart more and more, then soon quietly disappeared altogether.
