    It's a long movie, around 3 hours but I like it. Duke Wayne, Kirk Douglas, Pat Neil. It's an epic WW2 account of the Pearl Harbor attack. The Duke's character, Rock Torry's son was a Harvard PT boat officer and the Duke was the skipper of a Cruiser that was hit by Japanese torpedos while it was not zig zagging and relieved of duty. Lots of hints to real characters and incidents and fun to recount.

    She's a pole dancer. Before pole dancing was cool.

    From the looks of it he couldn't pass it up. Can't blame him.

    The Kirk Douglas character was able to identify his wife after a horrific crash and explosion and fire without so much as a grimace. What a guy. The Duke's movie son, Brandon De Wildie would die in a motorcycle accident a couple of years after the movie was released. For my money his part was based on JFK's Navy service.

    Navy guys like a bit of rough trade.

    It's OK, they had a safe word.

    As for Patricia Neal, despite being married to Roald Dahl and being in several of my favorite movies ('The Fountainhead' 'The Day the Earth Stood Still'),

    she is Boner Kryptonite.
