Default Re: Movies of the Sea ...

The sea is an integral part of our folklore probably because of the drama associated with its dangers. When I was a kid, age 17, I was on a Destroyer Escort 306 feet long, and when we went into a north Atlantic storm, waves burying the forward gun mount, our sister ship burying out of site then bursting white on the horizon, I said, "sir, is that what we look like?" When the high drama treatment that Hollywood uses is on screen, they have it right.
