Happy Birthday, Sam Neill!

Today is the birthday of one of my favorite actors: Sam Neill!

Perhaps most famous for portraying Dr. Alan Grant in Jurassic Park (and JP III), but also beloved for The Hunt for Red October, In The Mouth of Madness, Alcatraz, Event Horizon, The Omen III, Daybreakers, Memoirs of an Invisible Man, The Dish, Bicentennial Man, etc, etc!


The Hunt for Red October: Soviet Officers’ White Dress Shirts

Our best look at the details of the officers’ shirts come from Vasili’s / Sam Neill’s death scene:

Dress Shirt

From this we can see that they are white dress shirts with white buttons and a Nehru / Mandarin collar.

Also note that the officers’ uniform jackets / tunics have a white ‘false collar’ inside the real collar.
