Pan Am and Cinerama
James R. Morrison

It was 1954-55 that Lowell Thomas chartered a Pan Am DC-4
(Clipper Cinerama) to fly a crew of 18 around the world shooting a Cinerama feature called The Seven Wonders of the World. P. Willy Smith was Captain, John Bateman and Ed Sippel(navigator) were copilots and a guy named Hogan was steward. The shoot took about 10 months. Mia Farrow's father was one of the many directors. Also part of this production, Paul Mantz, stunt pilot, flew another crew around the world in a B-25 bomber equipped with a camera in the nose.
