...the production technique of which is exactly what I'm looking for to bring "Operation Kama," the story of the submarine element of the Cuban Missile Crisis, to the screen.
The script I have, you see, tells the story from the point of view of the Political Officer of the B-59 (who's attempting to make a propaganda film, and instead leaves us this historical account): the boat which came closest to firing its nuclear torpedo.
My proposed set is the B-427 ("Scorpion") of the same Project 641 ("Foxtrot") type as were the boats of the 69th Brigade, which is berthed next to the Queen Mary in Long Beach (with a possible night exterior shot coupling the USS Midway with the B-39 "Cobra" anchored in San Diego...trust me, for 90% of the interior shots, you want the B-427, which is in much better shape; I've talked with the managers of that boat: they're interested).
I read that Peter Huchthausen, author of "October Fury," one of the main references on Operation Kama, has a script ready also: you may want to ask him about it, but I suspect that his approach will have a much bigger budget than mine will, and that, moreover, the feel of authenticity that you could bring with my script would be unmatchable.
So, if you find my proposal of interest, drop me a line at rararoadrunner@hotmail, so that I can email you a copy of my script: see what you think.
Hope to hear from you soon, yours, sincerely, Matt Owen.
