I enjoyed Judge MacDonald's review of this early World War II movie and I recommend it even more highly than he does.
I do want to disagree with the Judge when he says that "the Japanese are not often spoken about and not treated as unfairly in this movie as in other war films". Actually, they are treated with total contempt and accused of things they never did. We are told that Pearl Harbor was a partial result of Japanese sabotage, which is not true, and when the B-17 is forced to divert and land on another Hawaiian Island, they are attacked by Japanese irregulars, which never happened either. Plenty of rasist comments are made and Garfield even gets to say "damn them", even though such phrases were prohibited by the Code.
Honesty requires us to acknowledge that the Japanese were brutal foes and much more hated than the Germans. This is partly racial and partly a result of the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. The movie makes no secret of its utter hatred of the Japanese, and the Judge is correct in concluding that this was the prevailing attitude at the time.
