John Ford's Battle of Midway

Posted on: December 27, 2005 | Views: 1,638 | Comment

This Academy Award winning documentary was filmed while the attack on Midway Island was underway and director John Ford was injured during filming. The film covers the Japanese attack of American ships at Midway atoll which resulted in the pivotal naval battle of the war in the Pacific. Comprised mostly of authentic footage from the battle, it is dramatically narrated by Henry Fonda. "Behind every cloud, there may be an enemy," he intones as American fighter pilots search the sky. The rest of the film mocks Emporer Tojo of Japan and portrays him as ruthless,bombing hospitals and churches as he tries to conquer the Pacific.
