I'm looking for a picture of Kirk Douglas playing his turtle shell guitar/banjo from the movie 20,000 Leagues ...

There's one here. But it's not from the scene where he sings Whale of a Tale.

If anyone has made a copy it'll be this guy (see link) - after a 1/10 scale replica "Nautilus", diving helmets and spear gun, a mere guitar should be easy!

I suspect it was a uke and not a guitar he was playing.

Uke it is, unless you want to interpret the photo as a four-string guitar!

Could be interpreted as a banjo. That's what I meant.

Did he sing it more than once? Because this version sure looks like a tenor guitar.

Thanks. I had a friend who was building a ukulele with a turtle shell as the body. I'm not sure if she ever finished it.
