As Jay stated, the movie 1941 was based on the famous Battle of Los Angeles incident. So I decided to check and thanks to Jay's references I was able to find those video comments by screenwriter Bob Gale and Steven Spielberg that 1941, the movie, is indeed connected with The Battle of Los Angeles. As per my previous post I have extracted all the relevant video clips. Here they are together with download links: VIDEO 1 - Bob Gale on 1941 Download link: http://tinyurl.com/3564sws Screenwriter Bob Gale speaks how he found historical reference about "air raid" in Los Angeles that happened in 1942 (Battle of Los Angeles incident) during the research for movie 1941. Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis, screenwriters of the movie 1941 - (two Bob's) are of course mostly recognized as authors of great film trilogy "Back to the Future" (produced by Steven Spielberg too). VIDEO 2 - Bob Gale comments Battle of Los Angeles Download link: http://tinyurl.com/32ufx7h Bob Gale explaines how he researched the historical material for movie 1941. There he mentiones again Battle of Los Angeles where he calls it "false alarm air raid". He adds: "Nobody knows for sure to this day wether anything was up there or not. It certanly wasn't a Japanese plane. It may been a stray weather ballon... It may been nothing. It may be just somebody got nervous and shoot their anti-aircraft gun". VIDEO 3 - Bob Gale on John Millius and Steven Spielberg Download link: http://tinyurl.com/3aysmvb Short reference by Bob Gale where he talks how producer John Millius presented to Spielberg screenplay by two Bob's (Bob Gale & Robert Zemeckis) about air raid (Battle of Los Angeles). VIDEO 4 - Bob Gale on Spielberg's decision to film 1941 and co- producton Download link: http://tinyurl.com/2vszb4c Short reference how Spielberg told to producer John Millius that he wants to film 1941 but first he has to complete film about UFOs (Close Encounters of the Third Kind).
