Tora! Tora! Tora! is the Japanese signal to attack--and the movie meticulously re-creates the atack on Pearl Harbor and the events leading up to it. Opening scenes contrast the American and Japanese positions. Japanese imperialists decide to stage the attack. Top U.S. brass ignore its possibility. Intercepted Japanese messages warn of it--but never reach F.D.R.'s desk. Radar warnings are disregarded. Even the entrapment of a Japanese submarine in Pearl Harbor before the attack goes unreported. Ultimately, the Day of Infamy arrives--in the most spectacular, gut-wrenching cavalcade of action-packed footage ever. It's the most dazzling re-creation of America's darkest day--and some of her finest hours.
