PS: We were going to post some sailor movies here, but when we googled “movies about sailors” we got some results we were totally not expecting. =(

    I assume it is no coincidence that FMB fled the country during Fleet Week.

  2. Ever seen the sequel to “On The Town”? “It’s Always Fair Weather” is an interesting film, a bit darker in tone.

    And where’s Sam Glanzman? And what of Miss Lace, of “Mail Call” fame? (I have a copy of the collection, formerly owned by a sailor on the USS Indiana.) Or Don Winslow?

  3. Yarr! It’s probably worth mentioning during Fleet Week that it’s never too late to check out the book I’ve been working on for SLG, Captain Blood. Seafaring derring-do at its absolute finest! I cobbled together a ComicSpace preview here: http://www.btb.gc.ca/btb.php?lang=eng&cont=867
