Cliff Robertson portrays John F. Kennedy during his late twenties during World War II. However, in real life Robertson was 40 years old when this film was released. See more »
When Ritchie shoots down the Japanese plane, you can clearly see the smoke generator hooked onto the middle part of the wing. There is nothing here that would generate smoke if it had actually been hit by gunfire (the plane may explode or catch fire due to the gasoline in the wing, but it wouldn't just smoke). See more »
It was a excellent movies and well worth a viewers time.For a era piece I feel that it showed how Kennedy got hurt and how he saved the lives crew even after getting hurt bad himself. The locations for the filming of this piece was excellent and true to life. The life on those cardboard boats were tough and the men had to endure very severe living quarters as such. It also showed how Kennedy got his crew selected and how they came to help get the boat seaworthy in such a short time. i would recommend this file to all war film buffs and those who enjoy a action film. The acting was good for the times of the 60's when we were getting ready for Vietnam and the bay of pigs issue.
