Goofs

Biff assigns Chesty to the, "fo'c's'le watch from 8 to 12". Correct phrase should have been, "fo'c's'le watch, from 2000 to 0000". Or, "The First Watch", but always with reference to the 24 hour clock. See more »

Amazing footage!
8 May 2018 | by edcasanova2003See all my reviews

I'd heard about this since I was a kid!

The scenes aboard Arizona, the US Pacific battle Fleet at sea!

The plot is lousy but entertaining enough to hold you between those amazing scenes!
