JerryP posted a topic in War FilmsI could be wrong of course, but when Robert Osborne was giving the lead in synopsis of "Run Silent, Run Deep" just prior to the showing of the movie, he made a statement that made me do a double take. He made reference to the Herman Melville quality of the ships captain (Clark Gable) wanting revenge against a Japanese destroyer. He stated that the revenge was based on the characters (Clark Gable) wife being killed while on a transport by the destroyer. If you will recall, the captains wife was not killed on a transport due to the simple fact that she was in a scene during the beginning of the movie at Perl Harbor before the captain left on patrol. I do believe that he was confusing the sinking of a transport with the Glen Ford movie "Torpedo Run" where the Glen Ford character's wife dies on a transport as a POW. The Clark Gable characters revenge was based on his submarine being sunk by a destroyer. If I'm right then Osborne really was confused. And thats not something I've ever seen from him.
