In the film "Planes, Trains & Automobiles," Del Griffith (John Candy) is reading a book titled "The Canadian Mounted." Is this a real book or just a joke prop for the film?

If it is real does anyone have any bibliographic info about this book? So far OCLC and Google have yet to provide any helpful information. Thanks in advance!

Yeah, just spun through Worldcat (as I imagine you did) and couldn't find anything. My guess is prop.

There's a porn movie (NSFW, duh) as well as a serial by that name btu I'm not finding anything in the usual places though this photo is sort of neat.

This doesn't help much, but the final shooting script is available online. The scene in question (p. 20) just refers to it as a pornographic novel.

My guess is they went with that made-up title, as it has many interpretations.
