Remember Pearl Harbor -- December 7, 2016

Showmen's Trade Review, 16-May-1942

75 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.

The first fiction film about the attack was Republic's Remember Pearl Harbor, which starred Don "Red" Barry, who had become famous playing the lead in the serial The Adventures of Red Ryder.  I suppose the movie took its title from the song.
