    "Battle Stations"???? More like boring stations. 25mins in and I'm out.

  2. 1:21:04. That car is a bit late for this movie.The continuity supervisor missed this one.

  3. James Bugbee says:

    Quite a strange movie, from many particular angles. Some of it might B 'cuz of the morale situation on board the Franklin herself.
    Got a few fresh ship images

  4. So Captain Bligh is fiction. I think the Captain of this ship needs to read up on history. No excuse for ignorance. Apart from that, this was a mighty strong movie. My last ship was an aircraft carrier. RIP all sailors who go down the deep for a final resting place. God Bless you all!

  5. Amazing but sad for the 2300 who never made it back home. Poor loves.😒

  6. Susan Cooper says:

    I have never seen this movie before, but I have enjoyed watching it. My father was on a British Aircraft carrier and I know it's a film we would have watched together. Good acting and enjoyed Richard Boone as an approachable captain. Thanks for posting β­β­β­β­β­πŸ€—

  7. the movie Wings made before 1940, A real classic !!

  8. I would like to see In Harms Way starring John Wayne Kirk Douglas

  9. Dinky Doyle says:

    Captain Bligh was the real deal. He became vice admiral. Born 1754 died . 1817 nothing fictitious about this fella

  10. Good to see this movie again. One continuity is the brief scene at 1:01:10 of the Japanese aircraft with a torpedo suddenly attacking dropping bombs. Must of pinched the footage from a Japanese propaganda film?

  11. Stu Lynn says:

    This is about the USS Franklin and it's crew with actual footage of the ship

    fastest gun alive with Glen Ford

  13. David Luck says:

    Bill Bendix @ sea….I remember his TV series "The Life of Riley" from the mid-1950's. That was quite boring too.

  14. Arthur Crego says:

    Pork Chop hill is a great film

  15. Steve Hardy says:

    "The Purple Heart" would be a great addition.

  16. Can you shoe "This Park is Mine" starring Tommy Lee Jones? Thank you. 😁

  17. Terrific movie! I don't usually like war pics, but this was excellent. I love these old onesπŸ‘β€οΈ

  18. Bill Vinson says:

    That was a great prayer. ❀

  19. J Gonzalez says:
