During World War II, director John Ford joined the ranks of the many Hollywood actors and filmmakers who
participated in the war’s film propaganda effort. At the behest of the United States’ military, John Ford and
legendary cinematographer Gregg Toland (Citizen Kane - The Grapes of Wrath) mounted the first re-creation of
the attack on Pearl Harbor in December 7th. Steeped in controversy since it’s making when the War Department
censored almost half the film because it was too even-handed and didn’t demonise the Japanese enough.
