    There was a float in the Veterans Day parade in NYC with a poster for the movie on the back. On the float may have been some of the actors. Also on the float were some of the real Tuskegee airmen.

    Not to take anything away from them, they were great pilots doing an amazing job, but is this movie going to tell the actual true story, or the myth?

    Seems like there is no mandatory love story in this movie - at least in the trailers, that is.

    my thoughts exactly......:(

    Wish they would do something new instead of rehashing the same stories over and over. I would even accept something like "Saving Hauptman Reinert" at this point.

    Maybe off-topic but I just read a short chapter about something that I would love to see as a movie. "Operation Lusty" about Watson's Whizzers and their efforts to collect LW aircraft after the war and bring them back to the States. Might make a good movie.

    How about something on the "less well-known" battles in the Pacific, such as New Guinea or Tarawa or another on Wake Island? I'd love to see a remake on the FSSF in Italy, that has always been a fascinating tale to me. Or a true story following Patton (I'd sit through a 12-hour screening of Carlos D'Este's book!) or Rommel?

    Dang, just finished reading that Wiki link....that'd make for an excellent movie! Or miniseries!
