Pearl Harbor - Quick Dry Paint
When they are preparing for war against the Japanese, someone suggests taking the guns out and replacing them with broom handles (to make it lighter I think)
Anyway, the next shot shows the broom handle nicely painted in black paint. The paint must have tried quickly because it was not wet when they handled it!

I was just wondering about somrthing, I'm not sure if it is a slip up or if I just missed somrthing in the movie. When Rafe is in Doolittle's office getting reprimanded for hot dogging with Danny instead of training, Doolittle informs him that the British have accepted him into the Eagle squadron. Just before he does this the camera cuts to Danny who is sitting next to another officer, it appears they are in the same office as Rafe. Because of the expression on Danny's face it looks like he can hear Doolittle getting angry at Rafe. If Danny was in the office, as it would appear, he would have heard Rafe accepting the position offered to him by the British. Rafe is told he does not have to accept,but he chooses to anyways. Later on Rafe tells Danny he was assigned, that way Danny would not be able to go to war with him. Even later on in the movie after Danny and Evelyn are told that Rafe has been shot down, they are talking about Rafe and Evelyn mentions how Rafe volunteered, and Danny looks confused and says 'he told me he was assigned'. Well if Danny was really in the office as it appeared he would have clearly understood that Rafe volunteered to go to Europe to fight in the war right?

They probably didn't have time to put a lot of paint on the broomsticks, so the paint dried quickly because it wasn't put on very thickly.

I do believe that they used shoe polish or some other substance, and not paint. I didn't see any paint brushes!

Clare, about your comment: Dolittle and Rafe were in Dolittle's office and Danny and that other guy were outside of the office. Kind of like a waiting room. I think Danny and the other guy were waiting to be called in to be yelled at. Ya know, like a principal's office. But I don't think Danny heard what Rafe and Dolittle were talking about. I hope that helps. If it doesn't, email me and I can explain it to you.

Clare, I think that you have it mixed up. Doesn't Rafe tell Danny that he volunteered because he didn't think that the war was coming to America and he wanted to fight. He then told Evelyn that he was assigned because he didn't want to hurt her.
