Errol Flynn was criticized for playing heroes in World War II movies. Tony Thomas in his book "Errol Flynn: The Spy Who Never Was" states that Flynn had tried to enlist in every branch of any armed services he could but was rejected as unfit for service on the grounds of his health. Flynn had a heart condition, tuberculosis, malaria and a back problem. Flynn felt he could contribute to America's war effort by appearing in such films as Edge of Darkness (1943), Northern Pursuit (1943), Dive Bomber (1941), Objective, Burma! (1945) and Uncertain Glory (1944). Reportedly, Flynn was at his most professional and co-operative ever was while working on World War II movies. WB apparently did not discuss the state of Flynn's health, as they wished to keep it quiet for fear that it would damage his box-office draw.
Colonel Hugo von Keller:
Say, have you ever flown a bomber?
Corporal Steve Wagner: No.
Colonel Hugo von Keller: Too bad! You've missed a great thrill. You come in high. You circle around, once, twice. You drop the bombs and see them hit the target!
When the German submarine surfaces we can see a cable (a "jumping wire") running from the bow up to the conning tower. Then down the back side of the conning tower to the stern. The jumping wire should be taut as its purpose is to prevent anti-submarine cables, nets, etc. from snagging on the various fixtures on the top of the boat. It also should be the upper most point on the boat. In the pictures it is neither taut nor the upper most point.
