The escape of a destroyer from the Pearl Harbor attack with only junior officers aboard is based on the action of the U.S.S. Aylwin (DD-355). The story about being pursued out of the harbor by her captain is also based on fact, but rather than a few hundred feet behind the Aylyin, the captain's launch came no closer than a thousand yards.

When Capt. Torrey returns home and finds Cdr. Powell on the couch, Cdr. Powell has a copy of PHOTOPLAY on his chest. As Torrey and Powell discuss Vickie Marlowe and wave the magazine around, one can see where the name PHOTOPLAY was just pasted at the top of the magazine's cover (note curled edges on either side and marked line at bottom of PHOTOPLAY name).

No, I didn't go to see Pearl Harbor this weekend. I stayed at home and watch my new DVD of In Harm's Way. The DVD cover is quite misleading. It sports a color photo of Wayne and Douglas, but the film is black and white. Their smiles would indicate a comedy.
Like From Here to Eternity, the human drama is set against the Pearl Harbor attack. Unlike, From Here to Eternity, the attack starts the film. And what a drama it is! Romance, infedelity, poor father/son relationship, honor, courage, rape, suicide. Never maudlin or schmaltzy, the performances are excellent, but low key. Back in 1965, taking the time to develop character was the norm, so to most young people, this movie would seem slow. Pity.
The battles scene are very good and the cinematography was Oscar nominated. There are some really breathtaking black and white high angel long shots of Hawaii with leaning palm trees and dark skies filled with billowing clouds.
And the cast! Your face will light up with every new character that appears. George Kennedy, Stanley Holloway, Hugh O' Brien, Dana Andrews, Bruce Cabot.
