Jerry Earle Kraft

ACTOR

When PT 109 was filmed Jerry was a second-class air control man stationed at NAS Key West on Boca Chica Island. Base personnel were offered the opportunity to take leave to act as extras in the movie. Jerry says that his work as a mere extra made him more than triple his military salary. During the filming one of the airplanes used in the movie was damaged. The film company wanted to continue to use the plane, but Willie Mount, the FAA representative, refused to allow an unsafe plane to be flown for any reason.
