John Landis on

Tora! Tora! Tora!

Released 1970
Distributor 20th Century Fox

One of a kind co-production between 20th Century Fox and Japan’s Toei Studios depicts the fateful (mostly wrong) decisions leading up to the world-shaking events of December 7, 1941, depicted with semi-documentary accuracy. The fiery spectacle is real, not computer-generated, and some of the stunts herein have never been topped. No love interest, a non-star cast of memorable character actors and a powerful Jerry Goldsmith score sets this one apart from the later CGI-fest, Pearl Harbor.
