Tora! Tora! Tora!

New this month Other mistake: When the message center in DC sends the warning as a telegram a young boy is setting next to the window, waiting I assume to deliver other post. After the attack on Pearl Harbor the same young boy delivers the same message.

Other mistake: Just before the attack starts, there is a scene where the Navy are performing their start of day ceremony. Watch the sailor who rings the bell. After he has finished he walks backwards and stumbles as walks into a small raised item.

Other mistake: During the attack there is a scene where a ground crew is trying to tow a PBY away from the fires. You can tell it is a fiberglass mockup because the bottom is cracked and jiggling from the stress of the tow vehicle.

Other mistake: The lieutenant who ignored the radar warning is called Tyler. The correct last name was Taylor. In the credits the name is listed correctly.

Trivia

The code for successful surprise (and the movie's title) "Tora! Tora! Tora!" was a shortening of the words totsugeki (attack) and raigeki (the Japanese term for torpedo bombers), and was originally spelled "To ra, to ra, to ra!" Those two shortened words were interpreted by American radio operators, who happened to intercept them, as the Japanese word for "tiger"; hence "Tora! Tora! Tora!"
