It seems that every good movie about the naval war in the Pacific mentions the “Coast Watchers.” In Harm’s Way, Father Goose and even the The Wackiest Ship in the Army all feature coast watchers in setting out the path to Allied victory.
So, who were the Coast Watchers?
In a former life, I began working on a screenplay in which the Coast Watchers figured prominently. If anyone in the movie business wants to see a four page treatment for a WW2 action/drama by Murdoc, send money and I’ll get it off to you shortly.
Otherwise, go read Eagle’s whole post.
