Maybe, but I think it would have needed a bit of history, like HMS Victory or the Aurora in St Petersburg. Yes, for all the money spent on them, and the prestige, instances when battleships fired on battleships in the 20th century are few and far between. The Russo-Japanese war saw a few, Tsushima being the most notable. In WW1 there was Jutland, and Dogger Bank if you include battlecruisers (Fisher's ocean greyhounds), though of course there were several occasions when capital ships dispatched armoured and light cruisers in fairly quick time. I can't think of anything between the wars. Then in WW2, there was Hood/Bismarck, Mers el Kebir, various night actions around the Solomon Islands, the sinking of the Scharnhorst and, as Noah mentioned above, Surigao Straight. Yes in WW2, with a swordfish effectively putting paid to the Bismarck and the raids on Taranto and Pearl Harbor, battleships had to look for another role, but always one where air superiority was assured or at least negated (e.g. night actions) - something like supporting landings through bombardment and as command centres, which the yanks were still doing up until the first Gulf war.
