Dear Friends:

Two short years ago we created this message box on our home page, asking for your help to keep this site up and running. In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running. If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Thank you,
Tobin & Rush

Movie (1957)

Glenn Ford (Lieutenant (j.g.) Max Siegel)
Gia Scala (Melora Alba)
Earl Holliman (Adam Garrett)
Anne Francis (Lieutenant Alice Tomlen)

On a small island in the South Pacific, the Navy's P.R. department is spending WWII without getting near a ship. Lt. Max Siegal is the second in command to a clueless commanding officer who believes sea duty to be the worst punishment he can give one of his men. Siegal has to keep the foreign correspondents happy, keep his commander out of trouble and figure out a way for one of the enlisted sailors to date the lady lieutenant of his dreams - all while convincing a certain island schoolteacher that he's the man for her.
