December 7th: The Pearl Harbor Story

John Ford’s “December 7th” was banned by the U.S. Government for nearly fifty years.  This special edition features the fully restored 84-minute version set in Honolulu on the day before the Japanese attack.  Uncle Sam (Walter Huston) vacations complacently in Hawaii, concerned with the on-going war in Europe.  On Sunday morning, December 7th, air squadrons appear, “swooping down like flights of tiny locust”.

Special Features include commentaries with four Pearl Harbor, the general release 34 minute version, Frank Capra’s “Know Your Enemy Japan,” and much more.
