Funny when you watch a movie several times, you keep seeing things in them you never saw before. This was the case the other night while I was watching the 1988 Movie, Biloxi Blues. In one scene, the guys are heading into town and head upstairs to the local Hooker. While waiting their turn, one of the guys is reading a Life Magazine. Low and behold, it's the 1943 Magazine with PT SKIPPERS Lt. Nikoloric, Lt. Taylor, and Lt. Searles on the cover. It is in the scene for a long time, and the actor even turns the page, showing a 77 Footer on the page. Why I never saw that before, beats the heck out of me. If you ever watch this movie on TV, check out that scene..............................

Didn't you play Matthew Broderick's father in that movie, Frank?

I was up for the role, but they thought I was just too good looking for the part..............
