Re: Watching The Bedford Incident and
Good movie but a few equipment inaccuracies. I first saw the movie a few months after going for a cruise as a Sea Cadet aboard the USS King DLG10 in 1964. I was surprised to see them use what appeared to be an actual MK114 ASW fire control panel in the movie. But the panel was not located on the bridge it was in the ASW Fire Control/Sonar room. BTW the chief who was in charge of the space who gave us a tour of the ASW room let us listen to recording of a Soviet Whiskey they had made off Hawaii. Sounded like a slow speed washing machine!
A British warship is used for the interior/exterior scenes. The model ship scenes appears as American type. Cannot tell which not my area. 1954's Caine Mutiny appeared to me more critical of the US Navy than Bedford Incident which is from 1965.
