Tora! Tora! Tora! Trivia

  1. Darryl F. Zanuck's previous war epic, The Longest Day (1962), was an enormous success, largely due to its focus on victory. However, Tora! Tora! Tora! is about defeat, as noted by producer Richard D. Zanuck, Darryl's son. Although the film made a great deal of money, it did not perform as well as The Longest Day. It was a genuine smash hit in Japan, however. For Japanese audiences, the film was significant not only for depicting a victory (after twenty-five years of films depicting defeat) but also for portraying the attack in a more understandable light. The film identified not only the villains but also the motivations of those who believed their actions were honorable.
  2. It is almost certain that Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto did not utter his famous quotation about having "roused a sleeping giant and filled him with a terrible resolve." This seems to be a post-war invention based on Yamamoto's actual beliefs on the likely outcome of war with the U.S. and his affinity for the U.S. in general. The quotation appears to be a more dramatic re-write of a letter he sent a month after the attack, in which he wrote, "A military man can scarcely pride himself on having 'smitten a sleeping enemy'. It is more a matter of shame, simply, for the one smitten. I would rather you made your appraisal after seeing what the enemy does, since it is certain that, angered and outraged, he will soon launch a determined counterattack." In contrast, his warning earlier in the film about attacking the U.S. that begins with, "If I am told to fight, I shall run wild for the first six months," is largely accurate.
  3. The wounded sailor shown firing back at the strafing Japanese planes towards the end of the film is based on Chief Ordnanceman John Finn. Finn was stationed at Kaneohe Naval Air Station on December 7, 1941, and set up a .50 caliber machine gun mount. Despite being wounded several times, he fired back at the strafing Zero fighters during the second attack wave, hitting several of them and even shooting down one, piloted by combat unit leader Lieutenant Fusata Iida. For his valor beyond the call of duty, Finn was later awarded the Medal of Honor.
  4. In Japanese, the date of the attack on Pearl Harbor is referred to as "December 8," as Japan is a day ahead of the U.S. However, in the subtitles, it was translated as "December 7" to avoid confusing the U.S. audience.
  5. Less than one minute of the footage shot by Akira Kurosawa made it into the final release version of the film, despite all the time and money spent on it.
  6. The African-American mess attendant depicted shooting at the Japanese planes in the movie is based on the real-life hero Seaman First Class Doris "Dorie" Miller. Miller was stationed on the U.S.S. West Virginia during the Pearl Harbor attack, and despite having no formal combat training, he took control of an unattended machine gun and fired at the Japanese aircraft until it was out of ammunition. He was later awarded the Navy Cross, which is second only to the Medal of Honor in the U.S. Armed Forces Order of Precedence. In the film Pearl Harbor (2001), Miller was portrayed by Cuba Gooding Jr. The USS Doris Miller (CVN-81) is a future aircraft carrier of the Gerald R. Ford class. It is currently scheduled to be laid down in January 2026, launched in October 2029, and commissioned in 2032.
  7. The scene in which the military band continues to play "The Star Spangled Banner" even while under attack is in keeping with military code. According to this code, the US national anthem must be played regardless of any circumstance. When the conductor frantically accelerates the tempo of the piece as the Japanese attack begins, he is adhering to military protocol while also attempting to give himself and the band the earliest opportunity to take cover.
  8. The P-40 crash on the flight line was an unplanned accident. The P-40 was a life-sized mock-up powered by a gasoline engine that turned the propeller and was steered using wheel brakes, just like a real airplane. However, the P-40 was specifically designed not to fly. The aircraft was loaded with explosives and was to be detonated by radio control at a specific point down the runway. Stunt performers were strategically located and rehearsed which way to run. Soon after the plane began taxiing down the runway, it began to lift off the ground and turn to the left, toward a group of other mock-ups that had also been wired with explosives but weren't scheduled to be destroyed until later. To prevent the other planes from being destroyed, the explosives in the first P-40 were detonated on the spot, and the stuntmen ran for their lives. The special effect was filmed with multiple cameras so it could be reused in other shots.
  9. In the opening scenes, Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto meets with his officers aboard a battleship. The ship is a full-scale replica, complete with a mock-up float plane on a catapult, and was built on a beach in Japan. Next to it is a replica of the aircraft carrier "Akagi". The Akagi set consists of about two-thirds of the deck and the island area.
  10. Several Japanese replica planes were also used in movies such as Midway (1976), The Final Countdown (1980), and Pearl Harbor (2001).
  11. All the Japanese airplanes flown in the movie were actually converted American trainers, as no genuine Japanese warbirds were available in flying condition at the time. Several American planes had to be rebuilt at a cost of around $30,000 each. After filming, they were sold at auction for approximately $1,500 each, and today, most remain in private hands and still flying.
  12. The film's failure in North America was due to several factors, one of which was opposition to the Vietnam War. While it is true that young moviegoers weren't interested in a movie about World War II, there were other reasons for the film's lackluster performance as well. For example, the film's marketing campaign was poorly executed, failing to generate the kind of buzz that would have helped it succeed at the box office. In addition, the film was released at a time when the moviegoing public was more interested in escapist fare, such as rom-coms and action flicks than in serious dramas about war. Finally, the film may have suffered from poor word-of-mouth, with early viewers failing to recommend it to their friends and family members. Despite these challenges, however, the film went on to become a cult classic in later years, with many viewers appreciating its nuanced portrayal of the impact of war on soldiers and civilians alike.
  13. Producer Elmo Williams aimed to make the film as historically accurate as possible. After putting together an initial script, he consulted Professor Gordon W. Prange, the foremost authority on the attack on Pearl Harbor. One of Dr. Prange's books, "Tora! Tora! Tora!", had been a bestseller in Japan and provided source material for the film. Williams asked Dr. Prange to review the script scene by scene for accuracy, and Prange made numerous corrections and suggestions.
  14. Many of the replica Japanese aircraft are owned by members of the Commemorative Air Force, an organization specializing in re-enactments and aircraft preservation. These aircraft are used every year in the annual CAF air show, where a re-enactment of the Pearl Harbor attack takes place. This tradition has been ongoing since 1972.
