* CaliforniaDoubling: Averted. The Navy wouldn't allow shooting at Pensacola, so shooting was done at an abandoned airbase in Washington State. So nothing was done to make anyone believe they were anywhere other than Washington, including the renaming of the RealLife "Mobile Debs" to "Puget Debs" (after the Puget Sound). Then again, trying to make Washington look like Florida would just have been silly.
