At dawn on December 7, the Japanese fleet launches its aircraft. Their approach to Hawaii is detected by two radar operators but their concerns are dismissed by the duty officer.
The Japanese thus achieve surprise and a joyous commander Fuchida sends the code to begin the attack: "Tora! The damage to the naval base is catastrophic and casualties are severe.
Seven battleships are either sunk or heavily damaged. General Short's anti-sabotage precautions prove a disastrous mistake that allows the Japanese aerial forces to destroy aircraft on the ground easily.
Hours after the attack ends, General Short and Admiral Kimmel receive Marshall's telegram warning of impending danger.
In Washington, Secretary of State Cordell Hull is stunned to learn of the attack and urgently requests confirmation before receiving the Japanese ambassador.
The message that was transmitted to the Japanese embassy in 14 parts — a declaration of war — was meant to be delivered to the Americans at pm in Washington, 30 minutes before the attack.
However, it was not decoded and transcribed in time, meaning the attack started while the two nations were technically still at peace.
The distraught Japanese ambassador , helpless to explain the late ultimatum and unaware of the ongoing attack, is bluntly rebuffed by a despondent Hull.
Aboard his flagship, Admiral Yamamoto solemnly informs his staff that their primary target — the American aircraft carriers — were not at Pearl Harbor, having departed days previously to search for Japanese vessels.
Lamenting that the declaration of war arrived after the attack began, Yamamoto notes that nothing would infuriate the U. The film was deliberately cast with actors who were not true box-office stars, including many Japanese amateurs, in order to place the emphasis on the story rather than the actors who were in it.
Several members of the cast had themselves served in World War II. Veteran 20th Century Fox executive Darryl F. Zanuck , who had earlier produced The Longest Day , wanted to create an epic that depicted what "really happened on December 7, ", with a "revisionist's approach".
He believed that the commanders in Hawaii, General Short and Admiral Kimmel , though scapegoated for decades, provided adequate defensive measures for the apparent threats, including relocation of the fighter aircraft at Pearl Harbor to the middle of the base, in response to fears of sabotage from local Japanese.
Despite a breakthrough in intelligence, they had received limited warning of the increasing risk of aerial attack. Zanuck , who was chief executive at Fox during this time.
Production on Tora! But after two weeks of shooting, he was replaced by Toshio Masuda and Kinji Fukasaku , who directed the Japanese sections.
Well, I always thought that even though Kurosawa was a genius at film-making and indeed he was, I sincerely believe that he was miscast for this film, this was not his type of film to make, he never made anything like it and it just wasn't his style.
I felt he was not only uncomfortable directing this kind of movie but also he wasn't used to having somebody tell him how he should make his film.
He always had complete autonomy, and nobody would dare make a suggestion to Kurosawa about the budget, or shooting schedule, or anything like that.
And then here he was, with Darryl Zanuck on his back and Richard Zanuck on him and Elmo Williams and the production managers, and it was all stuff that he never had run into before, because he was always untouchable.
I think he was getting more and more nervous and more insecure about how he was going to work on this film. And of course, the press got a hold of a lot of this unrest on the set and they made a lot out of that in Japan, and it was more pressure on him, and he wasn't used to that kind of pressure.
Minoru Genda , the man who largely planned and led the attack on Pearl Harbor, was an uncredited technical advisor for the film.
Four cinematographers were involved in the main photography: Charles F. A number of well-known cameramen also worked on the second units without credit, including Thomas Del Ruth and Rexford Metz.
Noted composer Jerry Goldsmith composed the film score and Robert McCall painted several scenes for various posters of the film.
The large fleet of Japanese aircraft was created by Lynn Garrison , a well-known aerial action coordinator, who produced a number of conversions.
Garrison and Jack Canary coordinated the actual engineering work at facilities in the Los Angeles area. These aircraft still make appearances at air shows.
For the parallel filming in Japan, full-scale mock-ups of the Japanese battleship Nagato and aircraft carrier Akagi were built from the waterline up on shore, with about 90 feet of their bows extending out over the ocean on stilts.
These were used for much of the Japanese scenes on ship's decks. The one error introduced, however, was that the model Akagi ' s bridge was built on the starboard side instead of the port side.
This was done because it was known that for the launching scenes filmed in the US, a US carrier would be used and the islands of US carriers were always on the starboard side.
A few of the modified aircraft were also converted in Japan for the flight scenes filmed there. The night before filming the "Japanese" take-off scenes she sailed to a spot a few miles west of San Diego and at dawn the film crew filmed the launches of all the aircraft.
Since these "Japanese" aircraft were not actual carrier-based aircraft, they did not have arresting gear with which to land back on the carrier, and continued on to land at North Island Naval Air Station.
Yorktown sailed back to North Island and re-loaded the aircraft. She then sailed to Hawaii and the aircraft were off-loaded and used to film the attack scenes in and around Pearl Harbor.
Aircraft Specialties of Mesa, Arizona performed maintenance on the aircraft while in Hawaii. A Boeing B Flying Fortress 's actual crash landing during filming, a result of a jammed landing gear, was filmed and used in the final cut.
The aircraft stayed aloft to use up as much fuel as possible, which gave the film crew some time to prepare, prior to landing.
After viewing the "single gear" landing footage they decided to include it in the movie. In the sequence depicting the crash, only the final crash was actual footage.
For the scenes leading up to the crash they manually retracted the starboard landing gear on a functioning B and filmed the scenes of its final approach.
After touching down on one wheel the pilot simply applied power and took off again. The B that actually landed with one gear up sustained only minor damage to the starboard wing and propellers and was repaired and returned to service.
A total of five Boeing Bs were obtained for filming. Other U. Predominantly, P fighter aircraft are used to depict the U. The stuntmen involved in the scene were actually running for their lives.
With over 30 aircraft in the air, the flying scenes were complex to shoot, and can be compared to the film Battle of Britain where large formations of period-specific aircraft were filmed in staged aerial battles.
Parts of the film showing the takeoff of the Japanese aircraft utilize an Essex -class aircraft carrier , Yorktown , which was commissioned in and modernized after the war to have a very slightly angled flight deck.
She was used largely in the takeoff sequence of the Japanese attack aircraft. The sequence shows interchanging shots of models of the Japanese aircraft carriers and Yorktown.
It does not look like any of the Japanese carriers involved in the attack, due to its large bridge island and its angled landing deck.
The Japanese carriers had small bridge islands, and angled flight decks were not developed until after the war.
This is understandable, however, as both Enterprise and all six of the Japanese carriers from the attack had been scrapped and sunk, respectively.
Enterprise was scrapped in , and four of the six, including Akagi , were sunk within six months of the attack at the Battle of Midway.
In Tora! In the film, Akagi ' s bridge island is positioned on the starboard side of the ship, which is typical on most aircraft carriers.
However, the aircraft carrier Akagi was an exception; its bridge island was on the port side of the ship. Despite this, the bridge section appeared accurately as a mirrored version of Akagi ' s real port-side bridge.
In addition, the markings do not display the aircraft's identification numbers as was the case in the actual battle. The white surround on the roundel on the Japanese aircraft was only used from onwards.
Prior to this the roundel was red only. The USS Ward was sunk by kamikaze attack in The large scale model of the stern shows the two aft gun turrets with three gun barrels in each; in reality, Nevada had two heightened fore and aft turrets with two barrels each while the lower two turrets fore and aft had three barrels each.
Another model of Nevada , used in the film to portray the whole ship, displays the turrets accurately. The ships looked remarkably similar except that Arizona had four triple turrets and a slightly different stern section.
Footage and photographs not used in the film show the cage mast as being built on the ground. The film has a Japanese Zero fighter being damaged over a naval base and then deliberately crashing into a naval base hangar.
This is actually a composite of three incidents at Pearl Harbor attack : in the first wave, a Japanese Zero crashed into Fort Kamehameha 's ordnance building; in the second wave, a Japanese Zero did deliberately crash into a hillside after U.
During a number of shots of the attack squadrons traversing across Oahu, a white cross can be seen standing on one of the mountainsides.
The cross was actually erected after the attack as a memorial to the victims of the attack. The Guns of Navarone Action Adventure Drama.

The most spectacular film ever made. Edit Did You Know? Goofs None of the attacking Japanese aircraft or American aircraft on the ground have any identification numbers or letters on their tails or fuselages.
In real life, every plane involved had such markings. Each US Army aircraft in the film should have had, as a minimum, its serial number stenciled on the vertical tail.
Quotes Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto : It is hard to believe the Emperor agreed to fix a date by which the final decision must be made between war and peace.
Prince Fumimaro Konoye : His Majesty's signature is a mere formality. The cabinet is responsible for all matters of national policy.
The Emperor recently read a poem to his Ministers to show how he feels. Crazy Credits The 20th Century Fox logo does not appear on this film.
Alternate Versions The Japanese release runs roughly ten minutes longer and contains two sequences not included in other versions: Admiral Yamamoto visiting the Imperial Palace and talking with Lord Keeper of the Privy Seal Kido, and a comical scene between two cooks about the carrier Akagi that explains how the International Date Line works.
Also, for obvious reasons, the Japanese characters' dialogue is not given on-screen English subtitles.
