Director John Ford's controversial docudrama about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was seized by the military (who felt the film portrayed them as being unprepared) and never shown in this complete form. Walter Huston plays a complacent Uncle Sam whose Hawaiian vacation is violently interrupted. An edited version of the film won the Best Documentary Short Subject Oscar. Special video version also includes rare newsreel footage from America and Japan. Available from Kit Parker Films
