The Photograph in question is the "commissioning"

or Lauching ceremony of the USS Missouri(BB-63)

on January 29, 1944

these are close but are not the acutual photo

I suggest you check the Truman Libary as his daughter Margaret Truman, christened her when Presidnt Truman was a senator

I would also like that photo as well

The Director Andrew Davis  also directed " Under Siege "

which occurs on board the Battleship

Movies, especially classic movies, current movies, family movies, and movies for families.


I am the movie critic for Beliefnet and radio stations across the country. I have written about movies for USA Today, the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun Times, Parents, Family Fun, Child, Slate, and Daughters. I am the weekly movie critic for radio stations across the US and in Canada and write weekly parental advisories for the Chicago Sun-Times and the Kansas City Star. I have appeared on Fox Morning News, the ABC Evening News, CBS This Morning, and NPR, and been profiled in the NY Times, Washingtonian, Chicago Magazine, and the Chicago Tribune. My book, The Movie Mom's Guide to Family Movies, was published by Avon in April 1999 and is now in its second edition. I can answer questions about movies for special interests, especially family concerns, handling questions from kids like "What do I do when he says everyone else has seen it?" to "My daughter got nightmares from a movie --how can I help her?" or "Why does my child want to see the DVD over and over?" to "What's the deal with Pokemon?" I am pretty good with trivia questions about movies, too, not as good with made-for-TV movies or miniseries. And I don't know much about horror/slasher films, sorry.
