Tora! Tora! Tora! -- December 7, 2017
76 years ago a sneak attack by forces of the Japanese Empire sank much of the US Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor in the territory of Hawaii. The Japanese Empire came to regret doing this.  Tora! Tora! Tora! was a unique Japanese-American co-production that tried to show the point of view of both sides.  There were three directors, Richard Fleischer, Toshio Masuda and Kinji Fukasaku.  Akira Kurosawa started to direct the Japanese scenes, but was replaced early on.

I watch it when it turns up on television.  I particularly like the flight scenes.
