"Circe" is the name of the boat in THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI.  The boat
used in the film was actually named the "Zaca" and belonged to Errol
Flynn.  This is mentioned in several Welles bios and sources, including
the "trivia" note on the film in the IMDB.  Also see David Thomson's
ROSEBUD (but beware, the index is mispaged!).
