The prior claim that the presence of the Issaquah ferry means that the locations are in Washington state and not Sausalito is mistaken. The Issaquah ran in San Francisco Bay until 1948. In the 1950s it was divided into apartments and rented. The pilot houses today stand at the entrance to Galilee Harbor in Sausalito and are used as a kind of mini-museum documenting the local history. This can be checked at the Issaquah history web site.

Robert, you know, one of these days I'm going to accept one of your resignations.

I stumbled upon "Dear Brigitte" almost by accident, and the names in the credits -- Jimmy Stewart, Glynis Johns, Ed Wynn, etc. -- kept me watching. I was pleasantly surprised by how charming and intelligent this film turned out to be! Stewart plays an English professor whose only son, Erasmus (the adorable Billy Mumy), turns out to be a math whiz. He's also great at predicting horses, and he happens to be in love with Brigitte Bardot (who makes a wonderful cameo appearance). The family lives on a houseboat, and their teenaged daughter dates Fabian. All of this makes for a very enjoyable comedy the whole family can watch together -- it may be a bit outdated (particularly the "high-tech" computer featured in one scene), but that only adds to its charm. This is a lovable, often overlooked movie that's definitely worth viewing with the whole family!
