Nice riddle Helmut
The boat's name is "Erebus", seen on the transom, referring to the son of the Greek god of utter darkness, as the movie's source novel was Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness". (Erebus and Terror were also the two lost ships in the famous 1845 to 1846 British polar expedition of Sir John Franklin.) The back of the seat in the forward turret (with dual M2 .50 cal MGs) of the PBR (Lance's position) has the words "God's Country" written on it. The steel gun-shield protecting the gun mount (single M2 .50 cal MG) on the back of the boat is marked with the words "Canned Heat".
You never stop learning, how beautiful... :wink:

Watched this one yesterday. A weird and not very good movie with a war theme in the last reel. IMO a movie to maybe watch once in your lifetime, then forget about it,,

Correct, I I started watching it this past week,based on the tagline that TCM had on it, as a a WW2 thriller,lol. THat was mostly BS, as thre WW2 stuff was in the last reel and weirdly out of place. The movie started out as a crime drama ala filn noir then quickly went downhill when the WW2 aspect started up/

Mark,

Hatari! is correct! :wink:

Herr Hardy Krüger in "The One That Got Away" from the year 1957.

The One That Got Away 1957 Hardy Krüger Full Movie HD


Today 93 years young, the "Eternal German Soldier", a still living movie legend.
My grandmother described Krüger as "eternally boyish," very typical of her generations.
Well Mark, it must be the one that got away for you… 8-)
