Decommissioned in 1948 and then returned to service during the Korean War, the New Jersey would be retired again in 1956 and consigned to sit as a reserve ship at the Philadelphia Navy Yard....

              The U.S. Navy emerged from World War II as the most powerful blue water force ever to sail the globe. Yet, when America entered into the Vietnam conflict, naval planners realized that the massive ships of the fleet were not well suited for some of the missions that the Navy would need to undertake in the country. South Vietnam not only possessed a long and vulnerable coastline, but it also had countless miles of inland waterways. In response to these challenges, the military launched Operation...

                      This is a story about the making of a movie. It's the story of a how a sixteen year-old wunderkind talks a scandal-beleaguered corporate sponsor into financing his dream project, a thriller called "High Output" (it's like "The Boston Strangler" meets "My Fair Lady", but without all that pesky singing). It's the story of a lunkheaded lead actor who needs his daily almond fix and can't go without talking to his pet corgi over the phone. It's the story of a deeply damaged producer-for-hire who...
