The younger crowd might know him from Cocoon or Trading Places

Even those movies are over 20 years old. Boy time fly's

The new movie may be great, but no one can beat Hal Holbrook as Joseph Rochefort!



Captain Garth : Can I ask you something personal? Very personal?
Commander Rochefort : Sure.
Captain Garth : You know, it really stinks down here. How often do some of your people take a bath?
Commander Rochefort : Bath? Hell, I don't know. What *day* is it?

Going to see Midway tomorrow.
Really hope the Raiders are well represented.
I flew the B-25 Wild Cargo to Montreal last year for the filming.
Sets were very impressive.

I saw the movie yesterday and I liked it.

Like always there are some scenes that are really unrealistic but it was nice with a movie depicting navy pilots.

Seen it last night, I liked it , but.... Some of the dialogue was corny. Oh yeah the Japanese would have never wasted a good anchor.

Watched it last night after a local critic said is was worth going to..

and as it turned out ..it was a good movie worth the few bucks and a few hours entertainment...unlike PH


A few things really impressed me..

The first was the residential interior building trim..the many coats of paint on the door jams...the door hinges, bathroom vanity...

the use of the B-26s...generally an over looked fact of Midway...although there were only 4 B-26s in reality attacking the fleet...it was nice to see em..


But why...Oh the humanity, did someone put these on Midway Island???..was a reenactor one of the prop guys?
