in search of noah's ark (1976)

Did anybody else see that? I wonder how it would look to me if I watched it again now.
Oh weird. I just discovered that the guy who directed that film, James L. Conway, has also directed tons and tons of TV episodes for the various Star Trek shows -- including the two-part pilot episode of Enterprise. And one of the writers went on to direct Silent Night, Deadly Night. Bizarre.

Expedition Will Seek to Find Noah's Ark
A joint U.S.-Turkish team of 10 explorers plans to make the arduous trek up Turkey's tallest mountain, at 17,820 feet, from July 15 to August 15, subject to the approval of the Turkish government, said Daniel P. McGivern, president of Shamrock - The Trinity Corporation of Honolulu, Hawaii.

Entrepreneur to fund Ark search
Last summer's heat wave in Europe -- thought to be the most extreme in 500 years -- caused a record "melt back" of ice covering the object. Mr. McGivern asked Digital Globe, a Longmont, Colo., company that specializes in satellite imaging, to photograph the area in August and September. The result, he said, are photos that show a definite dark patch in the middle of a glacier on the edge of the 800-foot-deep Ahora Gorge. A close-up of the patch shows what looks like three beams and a cross beam.

I'm just curious as to why you think this is funny, Peter.

The film's premise was loosely constructed around the mystery of the Shroud of Turin . . . At this time Sunn Classics was successfully producing cheap pseudo-documentaries such as this on a variety of subjects. The company then employed an exhibition technique known as "four walling" -- renting a number of theaters outright on a regional basis for the picture's brief local run (with all ticket sales going to the distributor), and heavily promoting the film with a saturation media campaign often misrepresenting the product and invariably leaving moviegoers dissatisfied after they had paid to see the picture. In Search of Historic Jesus was no better or worse than the general run of the lot.

Well, to most non-literalist ears, looking for Noah's Ark would make about as much sense as looking for that hole in the ground through which the Russian scientists allegedly heard the sounds of Hell.

Daniel McGivern's $900,000 effort to investigate a Mount Ararat structure he's "90 percent sure" is Noah's Ark never happened, National Geographic News reports. But the news service says McGivern may have known that the Turkish government wouldn't allow them to climb the mountain due to security restrictions.

We don't have any other threads on this subject, so this seemed like the best place to put this:

Texans Part Of Possible Noah's Ark Discovery
11 has news of what could turn out to be one of the biggest discoveries in the history of both archaeology, and Christianity. A group of men, including several north Texans, believes it has found the remains of Noah's Ark, but it's not where most think. The group made the discovery in Iran. That may come as a surprise, because Christians have always believed Noah's Ark was in Mount Ararat, in eastern Turkey.

If we hear that they've also found the rudimentary workings of a pedalow we'll know you're right.
