This is the preview to one of Neil Novello's documentaries about the Portsmouth Naval Prison aka The Castle. Thomas Mott Osborne was the eighth commander of the Naval Prison during and after World War I. Former warden of Sing Sing state prison, Osborne brought controversy, reform and a movie crew as Commander of the Naval Prison. Osborne allowed a motion picture company to film inside and outside the Naval Prison for a feature movie Osborne helped write and eventually took over the producing and distribution. In additional to Osbonre's movie, there is rarely seen films of the Naval Prison, World War I, and Naval sea exercises.

    I want to thank Pulitzer Prize winner, David Connelly for giving of his time to appear in my documentary. Mr. Connelly is currently writing Osborne's biography. It is Mr. Connelly who brought the remaining copy of Osborne's movie that shows the Naval Prison.

    Again thank you David Connelly.
