Water taxis whisk travelers from the quaint little harbor to isolated beaches and tavernas.Behind each mule train toils a human pooper-scooper; I imagine picking up after your beast is required.In 1956, Sophia Loren came here to play a Hydriot sponge diver in the film “Boy on a Dolphin,” propelling the little island onto the international stage.(A statue honoring the film sits along the coastal path just outside of town.) By the 1960s, Hydra had become a favorite retreat for celebrities, well-heeled tourists, and artists and writers, who drew inspiration from the idyllic surroundings.Locals, proud of the extravagant yachts moored for the night, like to tell of movie stars who make regular visits.Little Hydra, which has produced military heroes, influential aristocrats and political leaders, is packed with history.Hydra also has a few small museums, including a historical museum and a wealthy shipping magnate’s mansion.The one swimming spot right in Hydra town has steps that lead down from the sidewalk to a series of small concrete platforms with ladders into the sea.Kaminia’s pocket-size harbor shelters the fishing boats, and its taverna, perched on a bluff above, boasts my favorite irresistible dinner views on Hydra.Dice clatter on backgammon boards, entrepreneurial cats seem busy, children chase soccer balls, and in a low-profile corner, a tethered goat chews on something inedible.

- ‘Dunkirk’ Fact Check: How Many People Were Actually Rescued?

If you know Christopher Nolan’s movies, you know that fanboys, the media and more pick apart the nuances and carefully constructed details of his movies with a fine-tooth comb.[...] just how accurate is “Dunkirk,” Nolan’s first movie based on actual events in World War II?The movie begins in the midst of World War II after the Battle of Dunkirk and focuses on the May 26 to June 4, 1940 evacuation of over 400,000 soldiers left remaining on the beaches, a plan referred to as “Operation Dynamo.”At one point in the film, two officers played by James D’Arcy and Kenneth Branagh say the plan is to evacuate at least 30,000 troops to defend the homeland, but they can plausibly promise 45,000.While the movie says a conservative estimate of 300,000 made it out alive, ultimately, 338,226 soldiers were rescued from the beaches and harbor combined.Retreat to Victory says that the Little Ships of Dunkirk included pleasure boats, yachts, fishing boats and small, motorized lifeboats.Many of the planes flown and lost during the Dunkirk evacuation were the Supermarine Spitfire, a single-seat fighter aircraft used by the Royal Air Force.SPOILER ALERT AHEAD!!! This may explain why at the end of the film, Hardy’s pilot is able to cruise for seemingly miles after all his fuel has run out and the propeller has stopped turning on his plane:
