When Top Gun was shown in cinemas in the 1980s, some cinemas had small recruitment offices where euphoric Top Gun fans could join the military. U.S. Army officers advise Hollywood filmmakers, lend equipment, train actors, and review scripts for nearly 100 years. Sometimes they also suggest changes when the Pentagon doesn’t like the details. It is a matter of perspective whether you see this as a necessary aid or as an inappropriate influence.
