Re: 'Heads Up' On Sailing Movie (1978)

The 1978 movie Overboard was filmed on a boat called Spellbound. The boat was in Tahiti because Loren and Jody Edwards had been murdered, their bodies thrown overboard. The son that likely killed them was not charged. He offered the boat to be used in the movie and was in the film. It was a horrific tragedy. Another son has recently released a memoire "Dare I Call it Murder in which he chronologs the event. The son, Gary, who is in the movie was not remorseful or saddened by his parent's death at all and was acting days after the murders. The book is available on Amazon, and has shot up to #1 memoires and high on their best seller list within a month. Fabulous, well written book. The family was from Kirkland, WA which is where I live, so local interest was great.

Re: 'Heads Up' On Sailing Movie (1978)

Well, that's interesting dww. I remember the movie. Would like to see it again, only because I love everything sailing.

Man, this thread is the nastiest thing I've ever read on any forum. I got to post #63 and had to stop.
