BBfanboy -> Caine Mutiny author passes (5/17/2019 11:59:43 PM)

Herman Wouk, author of The Caine Mutiny, passed away. That book and movie were one of my favourites and I also enjoyed the books and TV mini-series The Winds of War, and War and Remembrance. Robert Mitchum starred in the TV Mini-series but it was Victoria Tennant starring as his love interest, Pamela, that caught my attention!

*** Spoiler Alert!***

Captain Queeg is the only guy who got removed from power for playing with his balls too much ...

ARRRRGGGGHH! I saved a .gif file but it was too large to upload. So I edited it to shrink the size and the program saved it as a .jpg! So much for illustrations!

Wow! I assumed he had passed years ago. Maybe Iíll just have to sit down and re-watch the mini-series. Itís too bad it was made without todayís special effects.

What a great, great movie. Tremendous actors. Terrific storyline.

Donít forget about Jane Seymour and Sharon Stone in the second instalment!

The movie is a classic, but the book is simply tremendous. Very deep with a lot of insight into the U.S. Navy of WWII (the book is at least part autobiography). Audible has the audio version which, coincidentally, my kids and I have been listening to (very gradually) in the car over the last few weeks. Just getting to the trial. I HIGHLY recommend the audio book.
May this magnificent author rest in peace.
