was this filmed on the actual APA 210
21 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am interested in the boat that this was filmed on. I was wondering if the crew on the boat were actual Navy crew members and how could I get a list. I think I saw my husbands navy buddy on it Lee Lucero and was wondering how I could find out. My husband was aboard the USS TELFAIR ( APA 210 ) same as on the film and he did recognize one of the guys, thinking it may be Lee. Since he did not know exactly where he lived prior, has been hard to locate him. If anyone can help, please email me at shelak2002@yahoo.com I am trying to find this lost Navy buddy and have been looking for years, we saw the film and realized that it had his ship numbers on the ship. WOW, were we surprised. My husband was aboard till late 1954. I have pictures of my husband and Lee but can't seem to actually locate him. The movie was funny and we truly enjoyed it.

Thanks, Sheila Kelley
