The submarine flick "U-571" surfaced as the new box-office leader in its opening weekend, sending another military drama sinking into third place, according to studio estimates Sunday. "U-571," a World War II yarn starring Matthew McConaughey and Harvey Keitel, took in $20.3 million for the weekend. Its success helped push "Rules of Engagement," the military court drama starring Samuel L. Jackson and Tommy Lee Jones, down two slots with $8 million after two weeks as the No. 1 movie.

Mostow achieved his goal--with considerable flair--but in the process of translating real events to the screen, he rewrote history to make it more appealing to American audiences in the post-Cold War era.

For a Hollywood film crew, Hangar 34 is heaven. The place is full of giant NP-3D Orion airplanes and Navy crew members busy tinkering on aircraft engines. The buzz of activity has attracted crews from the military television show "JAG" to film in this hangar at Point Mugu's Naval Air Station.
