Storyline

Rick Leland makes no secret of the fact he has no loyalty to his home country after he is court-martialed, kicked out of the Army, and boards a Japanese ship for the Orient in late 1941. But has Leland really been booted out, or is there some other motive for his getting close to fellow passenger Doctor Lorenz? Any motive for getting close to attractive traveler Alberta Marlow would however seem pretty obvious. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Trivia

"Across the Pacific" may be the title but the narrative never actually gets there. It starts in New York City (Governors Island), moves to Canada, back to New York, and continues south along the US coast (North Atlantic Ocean) to the Caribbean Sea, where it ends at or near Balboa, Panama, still some 40 miles short of the Pacific.

Goofs

As Leland (Borgat) is entering through the glass door to the NYK Line Agent's Office (to buy a steamer ticket) there is a nearly square flag painted on the door. The flag shown is a red circle with TEN rays extending from it to the edges in a sunburst pattern. It NEVER existed! The appropriate ensign/flag for a non-military maritime organization such as Steamship Company in the immediate pre-war period would have been the meatball* on a field of white - or, the same as the nation's present flag. The nearest thing to what is shown is actually one with only eight rays flown by the "Japanese Ground Defense Force." It was the sunburst flag with sixteen rays that was widely - even universally, used by the Japanese military (Army & Navy) throughout WWII - generally up to 1945. ((*) The red circle used by the Japanese for both flags & aircraft roundels during this period was in those days uniformly referred to by all of the Allies (military & civilian alike) as "The Meatball.")

Quotes

Dr. Lorenz: One night, you told me about your troubles in the Army. I'd like to hear more about that.
Rick Leland: I got in a jam with a dame.
Dr. Lorenz: Yes?
Rick Leland: I needed some dough. I had access to the regimental funds so I borrowed it, intending to put it back, of course.
Dr. Lorenz: Of course.
Rick Leland: They found out first. The brass hats could have given me a chance if they wanted to, but they didn't. They tied me up with pink ribbons and threw me to the wolves. Write your own finish.

Pearl Harbor was the original story's target
4 April 2002 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

In the original story, published in the Saturday Evening Post before the US was thrust into WWII, the target for the Japanese was Pearl Harbor, not the Panama Canal. Real events forced the movie to change the target from one that the Japanese successfully attacked to one where Bogart could prevent a Japanese victory.
