Oddly enough we agonized over that pronunciation! Our experts were pretty much evenly split. Joe, co-producer Tim Cremin and I finally decided to use the same pronunciation as George Patton. Was my call in the end, and I still think I was right.
Was great fun shooting all the guns with Joe! We do a lot of The filming at GUNSITE because 1) we like GUNSITE a lot and 2) the specialty cameras EAT light, and the high desert pretty much guarantees us sunlight all the time. We use 3-4 4-foot square mirrors to pour light onto the subject for the ultra high speed stuff.
Next week's Thompson episode is EPIC! I think we're going to put it in for an Emmy just to creep Hollywood out!
