The Bridges at Toko-Ri

Character mistake: Early in the movie, a flight deck officer tells Mickey Rooney to hurry up, and Rooney replies, "Very well, sir," which is major breach of Naval etiquette. (Officers say "very well" to enlisted personnel, but an enlisted man NEVER says "very well" to an officer.).

Trivia

Although the carrier used in the movie was the U.S.S. Oriskany, for the film it was given the fictitious name of U.S.S. Savo. I do not know why that name was chosen or by whom, but it was a very ironic choice. Although many U.S. carriers have been named after famous battles that were American victories (including Oriskany), the Battle of Savo, early in WWII, was one of the worst defeats in the history of the U.S. Navy.
