Synopsis

After the Japanese launch their surprise attack on Pearl Harbor during WWII, out-of-favour Captain Rockwell Torrey (John Wayne) is instrumental in planning the US navy's retaliation. The top brass slowly warm to him as his strategy begins to pay dividends, whilst a thawing of relations also becomes apparent between him and his estranged son. Meanwhile, Torrey's immediate superior, Commander Paul Eddington (Kirk Douglas), suffers marital problems that bring him to the verge of a complete breakdown. Otto Preminger's epic re-telling of the events that brought America into the war features a host of cameo performances from star names, and won an Oscar for Best Cinematography.
