Fathom: The movie. 1967

Recommended Posts

I just watched a fairly (ok, very) lame movie from 1967 called Fathom. It starred Raquel Welch as a skydiver helping a jewel thief, or trying to catch the jewel thief, or was she working for the thief...Anyway, there are a lot of real jumps with rounds and it looks like it could be California for most of the skydiving bits. Credits were sparse and the only name I could find was for Ken Voss for "parachute sequences" and for Donna Garrett as a stunt double for Raquel. Anyone know any more about it?

Here, from the scrapbook collection of J. Scrimscher, is a picture of his late father honoring the movie.B|

Ken Vos was one of the jumpers involved in the mid-air canopy collision pictured in Masters of the Sky. If you do a search here for his name, you'll see more details about that incident.

Hi Howard,
Ken Vos, what a trip!! Yup the "mid air!!, with Ken was Tako Bill "Willie" Manbo and they went thru Roger Rutherfords' canopy!! All three lived! Willie said in a flash he tried to turn and track and canopy and lines sliced his fore arm and wrist. Nice scars!! Those were the daze!!

You're really dating yourself, Jerry. Here's how she looked in One Million B.C. Did you wear a fur bikini back then, too ? ;)
