    I am still recovering from this amazing film which I have just seen. It brought to me the horrors of war on such a ship and the incredible loss of life for so many and the heroism displayed. I have recorded and will watch again. When they prayed I prayed and I am still drying my tears.

    I was a member of the crew of the ship on which the movies was made, the USS Princeton CV-37. Each morning at roll call they would ask for volunteers to be extras for the filming for the day. I would jump for every opportunity to work with the film crew just to see the ways the film was made. It was fun also to work with the actors and get to know them. This has always been one of the highlights of my military duty. At the end of each week they would invite us to see the takes of the week at the local theater. I have never seen the film in it entirety. It is a excellent movie with a good plot. You would do this old sailor a favor if you would record this on DVD.

  • Wrong Leonard Maltin!

    What people don't know about this movie, is that it is based on a REAL story of the most medaled, most heavily damaged ship in WWII to make it back to the US under it's own steam. It is highest among the casualties in one battle, as well. To say it is a "re-hash" of other war films is so wrong, as it is genuine and thus original. The only problem with the film, is that in those days, they didnt depict the real horrror. Had the film contained the real horror, in today's world it would be a box office smash. Sad. It lacked the true violence. And Leonard, had your own father been on that ship at that time, as mine was, you might see this movie differently. And not a re-hash. And remembrances to you on this Memorial Day, as well.

    I saw this movie twice when it was in the theatres back in "56", & thought it was one of the best damn movies of WW2 naval warfare, ranking right up there with "Wing & A Prayer, and "Task Force"! I always thought it was a pretty fair depiction of the Franklin. I have always hoped to see it again, possibly even see it on DVD! Why has it never been shown since 1956? Please TCM, put this movie in your schedule, & if possible, put it out on home video!!
