they were a terror on that entire side of the planet, raping and pillaging literally, and the ones apologizing for the bomb should be Japan's own leaders on behalf of their crazed emperor and military.

Back to the thread, another movie that celebrates heroes on the water is "The Guardian" story of the rescue swimmers.

Wasn't that the Humphrey Bogart flick where the Captain had these steel ball bearings he rolled around in his hands. The big ice cream disappearance investigation.

How about "Mister Roberts" with Henry Fonda and Jack Lemon? I first saw it in Baltimore on Liberty from Bainbridge, 1954. The theatre was full of youngie sailors and you could hear them all sniffleing. Must have been 300 white hats there. "BAM, BAM -- fulminate of mercury!"

I flicked the site Rob put up and I ended up watching a bunch of sea-going movie clips of other movies. Very entertaining.

You might be dating yourself but how about "Ice Station Zebra" which starred with Ernest Bourgnine (sp) as a Russian expert. Bourgnine was a lifelong member of the Naval Reserve who was buddies with Chief Michael Salima who had been my Division CPO. I never met Borgnine but I was close to Chief Salima, who was in the Reserves for 40 years.

Been a long time since I saw that movie!

Interesting the "degrees of separation" on the internet

I know Frank who knows Salima who knows Borgnine...

Mr Roberts came out 10 years before "Ice Station Zebra". I was a young recruit when Mr Roberts came out, would have been 1954; "Ice Station Zebra" came out in 1964, my first year teaching.

Ice Station Zebra staring Rock Hudson. I find Rock a true study where he charmed most young and old women and they swoned over him. At the end of his life he was found to be doing the flip side much to the distain of his fellowing. Talk about true acting.

You handled Rock Hudson delicately, Merl. I was taken aback with that revelation myself.

Moby Dick ...... no, not the porn flick, was another sea based thrill movie with Gregory Peck. I remember the birds working over the whale.

"I remember the birds working over the whale" <---- this!

A true Frankism if I ever read one.

Of all things to remember in that movie (said with a great appreciation
of Frank's love of the sea!)

Now that's another movie I have to hunt down and watch again... been a very very long time since I saw it.

The beach landing scene in "Saving Private Ryan", the wash was full of blood and dead fish. Its enough to make a beach person go boat fishing.

I've watched Saving Private Ryan at least 20 times in its entirety and that scene was enough for the entire movie.

Had a girlfriend whose father was a battle survivor and used to have flashbacks/whatever coming out of sleep. Used to freak me out watching this as a teenager. I never understood the depth of the trauma some went through in battle until much later.

Departure from the sea, but after all, we are running out of sea subject flicks, is the more recent "American Sniper" about a Texas Navy Seal who logged over 100 kills. The movie captures the drama of cross hairs of a scope which is something we hunters can relate to. People think that increased power in the visual advantage of a scope makes it easy. But an uncontrolled breath can move your point of impact 20 feet at 150 yards. I admit that scopes help the shot but unless you have used one it is not as easy as non-shooters think. I am kind of a teary guy so I sobbed at the movies end. Like Private Ryan, I have seen "American Sniper" a dozen times. I get horsed when the protagonist settles the cross-hairs on a target. I have put cross-hairs on animals I had no intention of shooting. One was a NY black bear the size of a refrigerator.

just thought: remember in Private Ryan the character Jackson was the assigned sniper in his squad? He would pray when taking a shot. My brother, Norman, taught me that to calm my nerves 40 years ago. Jackson: "Lord, grant me the ......." POW!

"K-19 Widowmaker" about a Russian submarine with nuclear contamination where part of the crew is exposed to radioactivity. I never thought I could ever feel sorry for the Russians. Poor buggahs!

We never go to the movies but we have this all inclusive plan with Charter with hundreds of movie channels which costs a ton of money and we pop our own pop corn spraying it with can't believe, grated cheese and salt. Maybe beer.

I am trying to think if there are any "shore" movies. Most sea movies take place on boats, I think.
