Me too, Pat. Watched them all the time when I was a kid. Trying to remember the name of that sea war movie with Jack Hawkins and Dirk Bogarde (think it was them). I can see them now in their duffel coats. LOL

I will have to check out that challenge, Cath. I had seen it but had not noticed that it included movies. Surely I could get one bingo.

Tracy: That's what I thought... surely I can get one bingo. Then I found 10 books that will qualify and I suspect there're more if I really look. So yeah, I reckon one bingo is achievable and I might just learn a few things.
