Okay, so it won the Oscar in 1945 but it's still a great short film (a shade longer than one hour). It's about one of the old straight deck aircraft carriers, and they use the nom de guerre "The Fighting Lady" for the ship due to wartime restrictions. Her real name is Yorktown. Not the Yorktown that fought in the battles of Coral Sea and Midway - that one was sunk by a Japanese submarine while being towed back to Pearl Harbor. The Yorktown in this film was originally named Bon Homme Richard, but the name was changed to commemorate the Yorktown lost to the Japanese sub. But she was no pretender - she participated in several campaigns in the Pacific Theater of Operation and earned eleven battle stars and the Presidential Unit Citation. This film has all kinds of gun camera footage that I found fascinating - and it's in technicolor. She was decommissioned on 27 June 1970, but she can still be seen today at Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. So if you're into this type of thing, settle back and prepare for an hour of fascinating film...
