REVIEW: Producer-Director Otto Preminger’s epic treatment of the bombing of Pearl Harbor details the devastating attack on the Hawaiian naval base as well as the explosive, behind-the-scenes stories. An awesome cast – including John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, Henry Fonda, Patricia Neal, Carroll O’Connor, Burgess Meredith, Paula Prentiss, Dana Andrews and a host of other notables – is interwoven into this account of the attack itself, as well as into the triumphs and tragedies of disobeyed orders, the American counter-offensive, father-son reunions, battles at sea and layers of romantic entanglements.
