Otto Preminger to Produce “Harm’s Way”

Oct. 9, 1962 - Now that Darryl F. Zanuck has definitively documented the Army’s European campaign on D-Day, Otto Preminger (right) combat has decided to assume command of naval operations in the Pacific. The filmmaker has bought the rights to a forthcoming novel by Patrick Dennis (left) called “Harm’s Way,” a 510-page chronicle of the U.S. Navy during the first year of war after Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor. He plans to give it an elaborate production in Hawaii early in 1964. “Harm’s Way” is the first novel of James Bassett, a syndicated columnist for The Los Angeles Times and campaign manager for Richard M. Nixon in the 1956 and 1960 elections.
