Not actually a movie shot but a shot of the making of a well known movie. Clues… the picture!

Thanks Waleed,

this was a nice riddle, I hope, Wheeler at the camera was correct ? :?

History Buffs: Tora! Tora! Tora!


Tora! Tora! Tora! https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tora!_Tora!_Tora!

The now modern classic from 1970 is still remarkable, I personally like the film very much.

Weekend greetings! :milwink:

The next riddle, maybe we did not had this photo yet.
(Size of the picture reduced as much as possible)

The title of the movie, the year, and the name of the sailor with the rifle please.
(For the movie buffs, what is he aiming at in the next moment..?) :wink:

Helmut0815,

almost perfect answer, but at what, or whom did he have to shoot, a friend or an enemy ? :wink:


Hans

Btw. The film is "legend", in every sense of the word.

Yes, the mercy killing (Gnadenschuss) for his Chinese work colleague and friend, horrible.

Your turn again, Helmut...
