Not sure about all the harsh judgements and concerns about accuracy, seems silly. It’s a movie. They used the USS Bainbridge because it was available for filming. It’s a 98 minute streaming movie, of course there is CGI involved. 
 

I read the book recently, it was not as good as the movie.  The movie is an exceptionally well told tale about leadership under extreme pressure, if you missed that point I suggest you watch it again. 
 

Are you sure about USS Bainbridge?  I didn't think there was a Fletcher named that.  There was a Clemson class destroyer named Bainbridge, but she was a four piper.

All I know is that my cable bill with Xfinity is over $300/month but I can't watch a damn Apple TV movie because of some digital buffoonery . Watching a WW2 movie with Tom Hanks on a computer screen just seems wrong. It was made for a 60" screen (at least)!

No offense Greg, but that is outrageous!   I don't pay for cable, just internet.   We have HBO, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney Plus, Peacock and Apple TV and we pay less than $200 for all of it (including the high speed internet to stream it).   I havent see an ad or a commercial in 3 years.   It all is connected seamlessly on our living room TV (and can be watched anywhere we happen to go.  That said, I watched Greyhound on my phone, on a plane and still loved it.    Cable TV is a rip-off.

I watched it on my 85 inch TV using Amazon Fire Stick and the Apple TV app. Apple TV is not limited to a computer.

My mistake, it was the USS Kidd in Baton Rouge. There were 4-5 destroyers named Bainbridge including the first one in 1903 and a current Arleigh Burke class but apparently not in the movie Greyhound.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
