Melani BS: Master and Commander FSOTW reviews (204* d) RE: BS: Master and Commander FSOTW reviews 08 Dec 03

Naemanson--Some of the meals Jack ate with the gunroom were overly stilted and formal, but then sometimes they loosened up and went well as dinner progressed, especially after a few bottles. Jack liked nothing better than a successful dinner where everyone had fun. He mostly ate alone or just with Stephen, but usually had Sunday dinner in the gunroom. He also at various times would invite the midshipman and officer of the watch to eat breakfast with him, largely because he wanted to give the hungry midshipmen a shot at a big breakfast. The dinner shown in the movie was one of the jollier ones, late in the meal when they were passing the port around.

I agree with BillR about the Lady Washington--apparently the movie was seen as a chance to get some needed work done. I noticed they replaced her giant tiller with a wheel for the movie--I guess the tiller didn't look pirately enough for Disney. I assume they put the tiller back afterwards.
