The Fighting Lady (1944) is a documentary/propaganda film produced by the U.S. Navy and narrated by Lt. Robert Taylor USNR.
The plot of the film revolves around the life of seamen on board an anonymous aircraft carrier. Because of war time restrictions, the name of the aircraft carrier was disguised as “the Fighting Lady”, although she was later identified as USS Yorktown. A few shots of aircraft landing were filmed aboard the Yorktown’s sister ship USS Ticonderoga.
