"Torpedo . . . los!"



I'm not much into most modern art, but I always liked "Torpedo...Los!" by Roy Lichtenstein, done in 1963. Apropos of nothing, I suppose, but The Enemy Below (1957) is also one of my favorite movies. Liked the book better though, even if it was written by a Brit.

Mr. Vanderboegh:

I don't remember this, so I'll have to go to the NETFLIX web site and watch the movie.

If I find it on the HULU web site, I'll be able to embed it on my own web site, OUR ETERNAL STRUGGLE.

Thank you for posting it.

Yeah, it's quite a good movie. It's also quite a bit different than the book, but then consider when it was made.
