Pat! In rewatching Pearl Harbor I was STUNNED to realize you were the young newsreel guy from the AP or w/e, who is tragically killed by some airplane firing bullets or something! Everything is different now.
Yes indeed. I was a Navy newsreel guy who inadvertently filmed my own death. Trivia: I worked with my friend Mr. Bay one more time on his only bomb, THE ISLAND, but was edited out. However, I still receive residuals from that film.
