Tom Hanks movie about a Convoy that his ship, Greyhound, with him in Command, is escorting across the Atlantic to Europe - U-Boat Wolf Packs attack.

One of the best War Flicks I've seen... not really a Submarine Movie like Das Boot or similar, but I felt the realism was really great and Hanks had me believing he was a Ship Driver.

My wife and I gave it five stars. As of this point, due to the Pandemic, it is only available at Apple TV +.

I agree Jack, but it is Hollyweird and accuracy was never their strong point...

I believe you'll find that in that scene and only that scene he was a LCDR - no Scrambled Eggs. It was an excuse to add Elizabeth Shue to the Cast. Additionally, at that point in the movie he was a reservist headed for training in Bermuda, and elsewhere for at least six months
In all other scenes to follow he is a CDR - with Scrambled Eggs.
