Over 21


"Over 21" is a 1945 comedy film about a wife who supports her husband's decision to enlist in the army for World War II over the objections of his boss. It was based on the play of the same name by Ruth Gordon.


"Over 21" was a play written by actress Ruth Gordon. This comedy ran 221 performances on Broadway in 1944, with Gordon in the starring role. This fast-paced comedy is set near Miami in 1943, where Max, a 39 year old newspaper editor, is sweating out United States Army Air Corps training in competition with much younger recruits. Against his advise, his novelist wife, Paula an author, has joined him in Florida to encourage him and cheer him on. Max's old publisher, Robert Drexel Gow, visits to entice him to quit the service and return to work.

One bulb seen for over 21 miles

A second order Fresnel lens currently in use at the Cape Blanco Lighthouse on the coast of southwestern Oregon. Manufactured by Henry LePaute, the lens is 80 inches high (6 feet 8 inches), and is sometimes considered to lie midway between a 1st order and a 2nd order lens.

Although this light station was established in 1870, this lens was installed in the lantern room in 1936, replacing a fixed 1st order lens, which had a flash induced by a curve panel which would rotate around the fixed lens, this being called an occulting screen.

If you are ever in the vicinity of Sixes, Oregon (Pop. A few seagulls and a whole bunch of cranberry bogs), take a little time and drive west out on Cape Blanco to the lighthouse. It's quite a considerable distance from the coast highway, as Cape Blanco is actually the westernmost point of Oregon.
