"-f , 10 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, March 6 - March 12, 1998 Movie Continued from page 1 through which the Italian film company is working, said the film will become a four-episode te!evi- sion series for release in Europe. "It's a big, convoluted love sto- ry between a set of twins and a woman, complete with spies and pirates and mistaken identity. One brother eventually is con- tracted to track down a famous pi- rate in the Caribbean without knowing the pirate is his brother. It's a fantastic thing that takes place over a number of years and all over the world," said Celesti. He said he's 95 percent sure the Delaware filming will occur. "We've booked the ships and paid part of the engagement. Marine shots are always the most difficult and expensive because they're so dependent on the weather." He said the Italian company do- ing the filming was founded in the 1920s by a man named Bava, now deceased, who became famous for horror shows and thrillers. "His son is director of the over- all filming and his grandson, Roy Bava, will direct the 10 days in Delaware. The filming," said Ce- lesti, "will include 254 costumed actors on the Half Moon and 30 on the Kalmar Nyckle. But those scenes will be from a distance. We're looking now for a heli- copter to use from the local area. We like to hire locally if we can." Small noted that Warner Broth- ers had also been looking at Delaware for the site of a Paul Newman; Kevin Costner movie being planned called "Time in a II Biopsy Continued from page 1 Bottle." "They needed an unde- veloped beach area and they were looking at building a beach house in Fenwick Island State Park but have since decided to go else- where. But it's remarkable there's been so much interest in this area in the past several months." Kalmar Nyckle in Lewes Delaware's Cape Region will be seeing a lot of the Kalmar Nyclde in her first months of being com- missioned. The vessel is a life-size replica of the vessel that brought the load of Swedes, Finns, Germans and Dutch to the Delaware River and the banks of the Christina River in 1638 for the first permanent set- tlement of Europeans in the lower Delaware Valley. Eric Nelson, marine superinten- dent for the Kalmar Nyckle Foun- dation, which is overseeing con- struction of the vessel, said the vessel was launched on Sept. 28, 1997, and deck work is continu- ing. "Her masts haven't been stepped yet but we're still plan- ning to have sea trials in April and her official commissioning on May 9. The schedule's tight but I think we can do it." In addition to the filming, the Kalmar Nyckle is also scheduled to be in Lewes at the end of May, through the Memorial Day week- end, for school group tours. "She'll be tied up at the town dock," said Nelson. "She draws 12.5 feet and the captain figures she'll be in a foot of mud at dead low fide but we think that will be all right." Nelson said the ship's captain was in Lewes this week taking lead line soundings to determine scanning technique'to inject a nu- clear dye to the area near the tu- mor. After injecting the dye in that site, the surgeon then probes just that area of the lymph node basin. While the dye is making its way to the sentinel lymph node - the one that indicates what is hap- pening to all of the lymph nodes in that basin - the ra- diologist takes pictures cause I can localize it so well," he said.
