Showing one-night only – in 1971

A spelling bee gone wrong on the Carma marquee


An all-star cast of Dean Jones, Sandy Duncan, Joe Flynn, Tony Roberts and James Gregory, entertained Bluffton movie-goers in this 1971 Walt Disney movie.

And, for one winter evening, at least, it was a real show-stopper.


Todd Gratz, Bluffton News editor at the time, snapped this early morning photo following a night-time spelling bee gone wrong at the Carma Theatre in downtown Bluffton.



The “G” movie “$1 million Duck” movie title apparently was too tempting for some with extra-creative minds – to keep their hands off. The “D” still remains on the marquee, but we don’t understand who came up with the replacement letter.




The movie’s plot is predictable: Professor Dooley takes home a duck from his research laboratory as a pet for his son, but soon finds out that it lays golden eggs.



The movie’s title may have packed the house. We weren’t there at the time to check.
