The Last Full Measure - PJ William H. Pitsenbarger

Due out late October 2019. All IMDB says is "Thirty-four years after his death, Airman William H. Pitsenbarger, Jr. ("Pits") is awarded the nation's highest military honor, for his actions on the battlefield." I hope they do his story justice.

Has a good cast with the notable exception of Peter Fonda. I'll still watch it but hopefully his presence doesn't ruin it.

The movie poster doesn't give me a lot of confidence.

Hopefully they had at least a couple of PJs as technical advisors, and hopefully they had the same discussion as the SEALs did with Berg when they made Lone Survivor.

Skimmed right over the obvious art error, because what's a Vietnam movie without Hueys? Wiki says there are "many" H-43s in the hand of private owners. FAA says 4 H-43s, and 2 of those are owned by Kaman. We'll see.

Although, I saw this on a different site (european release?), so who knows. I suspect your Huey comment is spot on and they probably did it on purpose for the US release.

I generally just assume movies that deal with subject matter I'm familiar with are going to suck and hope i'm pleasantly surprised. BAT-21 is a textbook example.

Ah, I'm not holding my breath on the helo based on this set picture.

As you go through the photos, there's an interesting mix of M-16s. Some have the original 3-prong flash suppressor, but there's a couple that are clearly M-16A2 with the round handguard and forward assist. Ah well.
