Hello,

Any chance I could get from you an email address of someone in movie development at Dreamworks?

Some 45 years ago when I was eleven I saw a movie that had such a compelling pace parts of it are still with me. I believe the movie was the 1956 Columbia release starring William Bendix, "Battle Stations", built around the 3/19/45 Kamikaze attack on the carrier U.S.S. Franklin. It's not available in video, etc., so I can't just order it anywhere to satisfy my desire to see it again. Anyway, I think the film would rival "Private Ryan" if it were redone in the grand Spielberg manner, and it's a story of such great heroism that it deserves to be retold.

Thanks for your time, and all the best,
