I think you've hit the nail on the head, Jim - just what this plot needs to liven up the quiet moments. And any audience who are happy to accept an Italian location for the Battle of the Somme will hopefully swallow a love affair between Rock Hudson and a partner of the female persuasion. For comic relief, we could have a Cockney British stoker played by Dick Van Dyke. And with both him and Ms Andrews on the payroll, we could consider including a few musical numbers and certainly a singing nun. This is blockbuster material.
