Filmed aboard USS Alabama memorial. There are shots of a destroyer used without i.d., but a whale boat was marked DE368 to represent the Doyle that was the first ship to arrive and the last to leave. A post war Albatross substitutes for the Catalina that was the first to land. The Ventura report is not mentioned directly.
The I-58 is shown about three different ways: a different underwater model firing, a Uboat surfacing and a sail for the surface, which might be the USS Drum at the same memorial.
I received my dvd yesterday and can now tell you about the quality of the transfer. The picture quality is not bad, it is not HD quality but I didn't notice any problems like graininess, or scratches, or anything like that. It is not any better or worse than a typical cable broadcast program. The sound is also about average, so don't expect to get blown out of your seat.
The story is a very powerful one that once you see it you won't be likely to forget it.
If You have Amazon prime then you can watch this for free on Amazon instant videos. Yippee!
The movie can not give the details found in the book, but you
get a feeling for the horror the men lived through.
If you are a WWII buff you will enjoy this.
sailor's being chumped on by sharks. Its sad and sick that this
happened. I purchased this as a gift. I won't watch the movie ever
again due to the sick scenes in it. I do this out of respect for the Sailors
