Port hole prop used in the production of James Cameron's classic 1997 film Titanic, measuring 13? in diameter, recovered from the film's 'prop graveyard' in Rosarito, Mexico. In fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Jack Cardoza, in part: "I worked on the James Cameron 'Titanic' movie in Rosarito Beach, Baja Mexico from November 1996 until we wrapped in late March 1997. I was an extra and appeared in many of the scenes of the movie...Fox Studio Management, in their infinite wisdom, decided to throw away most of the set props. The disposal area was the old land fill for Rosarito. It was now privately owned and being developed for home sites. This created a $50,000 clean up project for the land owner, Mr. Fernando Gamboa. Fernando visited his land after an extended work assignment and found half of the 'Titanic' parked on his land. He approached both Fox and Paramount to clean this up but his efforts were ignored. In desperation, he got on San Diego media and offered these items to the public. He allowed many of us to gather souvenirs from this great heap of leavings...This port hole was used in the production of Titanic and was recovered in Rosarito, Mexico, near where the pile of props was abandoned."
