    I'm a little confused. I though the movie "The Good Shepherd" was about the CIA - I think the founding of the CIA. The movie "Greyhound" was taken from CS Forrester's book "The Good Shepherd," and filmed in 2006. I read the CS Forester book, (written in 1955) and also saw the movie "Greyhound." Both the book and the movie were outstanding. Having read the book as a kid, lead me to join the Navy (that and the fact that my dad was a UDT at the end of WW2, and I grew up watching Sea Hunt). I need to do a little more research on the the movie and the book. I hate being confused - but it is normal for me.

    My wife and I enjoyed watching the Tom Hanks movie "Greyhound" even though I'm sure several aspects of it were embellished for entertainment's sake.
