Goofs

When we first see Gary Cooper he is in a car driving onto a Navy base. There is a guard stationed at the base who waves Cooper in. The guard has a 1911 Pistol holstered on his belt. There isn't a magazine inserted in the pistol so he is guarding the front gate with an unloaded weapon. See more »

Quotes

Adm. Tennant: [Exiting engine room] I've never seen anything like it in my whole life!
Ryan: We keep it running, sir.
Adm. Tennant: Yeah, Yeah, you can also hang upside-down with your belt from a doorknob and kick the transom open with your feet, but I don't recommend it Chief.

I was on the USS PC_476 in WWII
13 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Today,13 June 2007, was my first viewing of the movie and I was really excited since I never knew that it had been made. The PC476 was in the Pacific from Guadalcanal to Australia to New Guinea to Leyte in the Philippines. I was Signalman 3rd Class and worked on top with the signal lamps. Our PC had two GM 1600HP diesel engines and we also had equipment to desalinate water which just barely sufficient to meet our daily needs except for showers. I spent two years aboard from Oct 1943 to Oct 1945. I really enjoyed the movie and it did capture the essence of the required intimacy of the 60 enlisted and 5 officer crew on a vehicle 173 feet long and 21 feet wide at the beam.
