They Were Expendable (1945)
Crew or equipment visible
The Naval Officers are conspicuous in the wearing of "dress whites"- as opposed to khakis, and the women seen are all in evening attire. The setting clearly appears to be after hours' "cocktails" - not earlier dinner, and thereby places the time-frame at about 8pm local time plus-or-minus an hour or so. This scene is interrupted by a civilian making the FIRST announcement of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
The attack at Pearl commenced at\between 7:48 to 7:55am Hawaiian time - sources vary. Time-wise there is an 8-hour 'negative' differential from Hawaii to the Philippines making that nominally 12:52AM - the wee-small hours of the morning and certainly not evening. Historically the first information about the attack WAS known by the Military throughout the Philippines starting roughly minutes after attacked had started via multiple receptions of the famous "Air Raid Pearl harbor, this is No Drill" radio message also picked-up by the Navy & War Depts. in WDC! (In fact, midnight hour "atmospherics" would have favored clearer reception at Manila far better than anywhere on the east coast of the US mainland.) Therefore the scene is simply a propaganda ploy or if preferred, "dramatic license" on the part of the Director (John Ford) and at the time of the movie's release all too obvious to Vets & civilians alike.
