In the movie Pear! Harbor, Dorie Miller (Cuba
Gooding Jr.), a messman with no formal rifle training,
runs to an open anti-aircraft gun and shoots down
multiple Japanese planes, then pulls wounded sailors
through 400 yards of flaming wreckage to safety. It
feels like typical corny Hollywood theatrics, except
for the fact that it's exactly what happened.
