The Fighting Lady

An excellent WWII propaganda film about an “unnamed” carrier (almost certainly CV-16, USS Lexington CV-10, Yorktown,d’oh!) in the Pacific War. Released sometime in late 1944, it’s in color, and extremely interesting. It’s also over an hour long, so grab your popcorn.

  1. The Lady of the Fighting Lady was actually the USS YORKTOWN (CV-10). Apparently in one of the scenes where they are showing footage of a strafing attack, Gregory Boyington claims he was one of the targets (well it was Truk and he was there).

    1. You’re correct. I thought Yorktown, heck, I even READ Yorktown, saw the numbers on the bow, and yet, my fat fingers ignored by pleas and typed Lexington.
