Tom Hanks Is Disappointed In Most Navy Movies, Believes Star Trek Is To Blame

I have to say, a movie buff, and as a man who reads and pursues historical past for pleasure, Navy movies nearly at all times upset me. Because within the 1950s, the expertise as a way to present them — like Run Silent, Run Deep or The Enemy Below or In Harm’s Way — might solely achieve this a lot simply by the comparatively primitive elements of filmmaking strategies. What you had in them was actually nice characters. What you had in them was portrayals by actors… Clark Gable and a myriad of the good legends of Hollywood that had been put again in uniform (to) relive their days. As far because the precise Naval facet of it, I have to confess that the majority of, I feel, the populace’s understanding of Naval technique and protocol and conduct actually got here from the Starship Enterprise and Captain James T. Kirk. “Mr. Sulu, you have the con!” That kind of, that order of a series of command that will associate with it.
