The US Navy did not support the making of the film as it did not wish to be associated with the alleged true events surrounding the events of Philadelphia Experiment. See more
Early in the movie an order is given onboard the control ship to tell the Eldridge to turn off its equipment. The order is given to an enlisted man wearing a sound-powered phone who then turns to a 1MC box. Although the order needs to be sent by radio, both of the devices are only for internal communications on a ship. See more
This now, this time, it's not ours. We weren't here when it happened. The experiment took place on a ship in a Philadelphia harbor. It was - 1943, October. Does this sound... crazy? You know, or is this sort of thing possible now?
