Goofs

President Truman is shown returning to the USA on the USS Augusta. He is shown on of a naval vessel flying a "jack'" This is a flag made up of just the canton portion of a flag, or solely the blue field with only stars. It is Navy policy that this flag is flown from 0800 to sunset on ships that are moored or in port. Once underway, as President Truman was shown, it should have been exchanged for the standard National ensign, the U.S. Flag. See more »

Intelligent and provocative and of highest quality
2 February 2002 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

I found this masterpiece of a film by perusing the cable tv guide. Being a war history enthusiast, I was drawn to the content of the movie, only to realize that the production and actors and characters and images and storyline were equally well done. None of the performers are big celebrities, but that fact takes nothing away from their incredible performances and likenesses to the true people they portrayed. Kenneth Welsh as Harry Truman and Wesley Addy as Sec of War Stimson dominate with memorable renditions, but the entire cast deserves almost equal praise. I was not aware that President Truman was on a battleship when the uranium bomb descended on Hiroshima. The attitudes of American and Japanese leaders were nicely shown, and Truman's portrayed thoughtfulness and decisiveness were impressive. One of the infrequent 10's of my movie history. The docu-drama format gave the piece an even more realistic appeal.
