Did You Know?
This film is widely believed to be based on a real-life and ill-fated experiment with invisibility and force fields in the 1940s. However, to the best of any factual knowledge, no such experiment ever occurred and the story was the work of an eccentric loner, Carl Allen, who sent notes on the "experiment" to the government in the 1950s and whose story was later leaked. Despite the lack of any factual evidence, the story has become an urban legend and favorite of conspiracy theorists, who point to the lack of evidence as proof that it's being covered up. See more
The ship shown momentarily as the Eldridge (DE-173) at the beginning of the movie is actually the USS Laffey (DD-724), a Sumner class destroyer which looks nothing like a Cannon class destroyer escort. The Laffey is a museum ship in Charleston, South Carolina. See more
