Re: The U.S.S. DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER.
Please note that many of the dockside scenes were filmed at pier 12 Norva. Ike was directly accross the pier from Nimitz during filming. How do I know I was there when it happened and inadvertently walked into a scene they were filming. A production assistant came running towards me asking me to move to the otherside of the pier. Eviedently I was in the rear window area of a lemo they were shooting in.
Loved that movie and still do! The NIMITZ and associated escort ships - even though they left early in the movie - as well as the planes are the super stars and those Hollywood actors were just secondary. I wish that they had made the movie to also include DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER so the two giants could been seen operating together. Great line by Kirk Douglas - "Turn the NIMITZ into the wind". Wish I could do that!
