Coinciding with the film streaming on Apple TV+, the USS KIDD Veterans Museum is pleased to bring to Baton Rouge a small-scale exhibit of one of Mr. Hanks’ costumes, plus several props used in the movie.
Based on the novel “The Good Shepherd” by C.S. Forester, Greyhound follows U.S. Navy Commander Ernest Krause and his ship USS KEELING (voice call sign Greyhound) as they protect a convoy of 37 ships carrying thousands of soldiers and much-needed supplies across the treacherous waters of the Atlantic during WWII. For five days with no air cover, the captain and his small force of three escort ships must make their way through an area of the ocean known as “the Black Pit,” battling Nazi U-boats while protecting their invaluable ships and soldiers.
Tom Hanks stars as Captain Krause. Stephen Graham, Rob Morgan, and Elisabeth Shue star alongside Hanks, who also wrote the screenplay. The film is directed by Aaron Schneider and produced by Gary Goetzman. Filming aboard USS KIDD took place in 2018.
