Hope and Crosby had stowed away on an ocean liner bound for Rio.
One scene showed the passengers sitting around on the main deck one night watching a movie. So it appears at least the idea has been around sometime.
Yes, and many ships of the U. S. Navy have held movie call out on deck, weather permitting, in the past. This goes back at least to the 1930's.
