The webmaster recently became aware of two videos with John Semcken (2ndCo.) being interviewed about Top Gun including one Navy video from 1985 prior to the movie being released. Both were added to Classmates on Video page.
In 1985, onboard the USS Enterprise a Navy Journalist interviewed Director Tony Scott and actors Tom Cruise, Tim Robbins and Anthony Edwards several months before the movie came out. John crashed the interview at 10:30.
Just recently, TopGunDays.com interviewed John about making Top Gun and some behind the scenes stuff.
