Product Notes

President John F. Kennedy kept a unique inauguration gift on his White House desk: A coconut encased in plastic. The tale of that coconut is the heroic story of PT 109. Academy Award winner Cliff Robertson stars in this stirring saga of Kennedy's wartime exploits as skipper of a PT boat in the Solomon Islands. The assignment: harass the enemy and buy time for a U.S. Navy still on the drawing boards. In August 1943, PT 109 was sliced in half by a Japanese destroyer. Kennedy led his surviving crew through a sea aflame from gasoline, towing a badly burned sailor miles to the nearest island. There seemed little hope of rescue from the Japanese-dominated area, until a strategy involving a coconut emerged. The triumphant outcome was unbelievable; and all true!
