USS FRANKLIN. The amazing story of the aircraft carrier USS Franklin CV-13, "The Ship That Would Not Die". Actual films of the ship's most heroic battles. Originally produced by NBC Television. Hosted by Gene Kelly, this is the powerful story of the most decorated ship and crew in the United States Naval History. Here is the battle scarred story of the USS Franklin - "Big Ben" - and the men who brought her home. Fighting her way to Iwo, The Philippines, Guam, Okinawa, Formosa and the Japanese mainland, the USS Franklin took the kamikaze onslaught and in turn she bloodied the enemy: 160 ships and 338 aircraft downed, 3,971 combat sorties. Against all odds, she limped her way across the Pacific, the Panama Canal, and made the port of New York as the most heavily damaged ship ever to make home port under her own power. Color. 60 minutes.
