WHAT'S NEW ON THIS WEBSITE
May 12, 2015 - Added
material to three sections of the "Scenic Locales" section of the Photo Gallery.
Added links to related webpages for the movie to my Weblinks page. Added Chapter
13 (Cast & Credits) to the Book Excerpts section.

January 9, 2015 - Added several large color photos to the Hurricane pics page, which can be found in the Photos/Aircraft section of the website.
January 8, 2015 - Added a photo page for the B-25 Mitchell bomber that was used in the movie as a flying camera platform. It can be found in the Photos/Aircraft section of the website. Added a color photo of the Ju-52 to the misc aircraft page.
December 24, 2014 - I've decided to use material from Robert Rudhall's two books on the movie. Apparently the author is dead, and all of the files needed to reprint the photo album are lost or missing, so there will never be another printing. They didn't print many to begin with, and you would be extremely lucky to find one on the used market for several hundred dollars! In order to keep this material from being lost to the ages I will use some of the text and photos so that future researchers will have access to it. This process might take quite awhile, but check back in the after the holidays to see what has been added.
December 21, 2014 - Added a page for lobby card pictures. This is not the definitive collection, it's only what I had in my files as of the moment. I'm sure there's more out there, so I may be adding more to that page in the future.
December 20, 2014 - After years of abandonment, I have finally started to work on this website again. Hopefully I can add most all of the rest of my material before I again run out of time and initiative...
If you have any additional material that I can add to the site, please let me know! Thanks!
