President Truman has chosen you and your crew to lead a highly classified mission.
Several times throughout the film, the 45 caliber decks guns (the largest guns on ship) are shown with brass barrel caps plugging the holes. These caps were later added to the USS Alabama display, where the movie was filmed, but these caps would not have been in use during wartime on the USS Indianapolis.
During the credits, old photos from the USS Indianapolis and her crew roll alongside the credits.
