Summer Incident
July 4, 1960
The story of the Marines who landed in Lebanon to secure American interests, and the naval personnel that got them there. I have a copy of the video that he narrated. It's a Navy film called "Summer Incident" about the US Invasion of Lebanon in 1958, a Louie de Rochemont film. He also makes reference to his experiences on the Navy Carrier CV9 Essex and Cruiser Springdale in a number of his WOR shows like 2-4-65, 1-12-76 and others. He just narrated the film, no on screen or credits. It is one of those official Navy films so his script is very rigid and word for word...no adlibs. Portions of this movie may have been released in a film short called "The March of Todd-AO"
