Movie Ghosts

I started watching films in my DVR queue last night. The choice was "Here Comes the Navy" which was nominated in 1935. If nothing else it provided a window into American life in the 30's. Ah! What a more simpler time. What was poignant for me was that the ship that James Cagney wanted to be assigned to was the USS Arizona. I guess the Navy actually let them film on the ship. It was sad to know that 7 years later it would be sitting at the bottom of Pearl Harbor with over a thousand souls still on board.

Earlier in the day I saw another ghost. I turned on "Ghostbusters" for a few minutes since it was the only worthwhile thing on. There was the ambulance going across a bridge into Manhattan. The camera pans up and focuses on the Twin Towers.
