Real name John Paul and added the name Jones when he was accused of killing a seaman during a riot aboard ship to avoid prosecution. See more »
In the film it is stated that the name of Jones' ship, the Bonhomme Richard, was the French for "Poor Richard," in honor of Benjamin Franklin, author of "Poor Richard's Almanack" who was then the American ambassador to the French, who had provided Jones with his ship. While the ship was named in honor of Franklin, "Bonhomme Richard" is actually the French for "good man Richard." "Poor Richard" would have been "Pauvre Richard." See more »
Just a question; where was JPJ filmed? (I'm looking for ALL locations)and does the movie archive keep a list of unnamed and uncredited extras who appeared (in the backdrop) of the film? My folks have had a replica of the Declaration of Independence in our living room that they say was a souvenir given to people (i.e. my uncle) who were hired by the producers as extras. He said that he was a signer of the document. He and my aunt also kept a copy in their house. It's been awhile since I've seen the movie, but I will look more closely next time to see if I recognize him. My uncle wasn't an actor, but a military man (retired, I think, by that time). He had to have been in the right place at the right time to be chosen as an extra. I'd love to have more info. Jeff
