Description
Heroic and True!
The top-secret World War II mission that sent America's hopes soaring.

Coaxing a hulking Mitchell B-25 into the sky from a short, 500-foot carrier runway on a bouncing sea is dangerous. Tougher still is doing it with a full bomb load. But for Lt. Col. James Doolittle (Spencer Tracy) and the crewmen of 16 B-25s, that just the start of the mission.

Academy Award-winning Best Special Effects recreate the squadron's low-altitude, "hedge-hopping" sweep over Japan in this suspenseful saga of the attack that bolstered U.S. morale during the bleak early days of the Pacific war. The intensive training, the daring bombing run, the subsequent forced landings in China and the perilous trek to safety: all the valiant touchstones of the true-life raid are captured in a beloved classic whose other stars include Van Johnson, Robert Walker and Robert Mitchum.

                  A dramataztion of the first Bombing of Japan in 1942 and the cooperation of different military arms to perform this objective. Also see "Destination Tokyo" the Navy's roll to get some of the intellegence before the bombing. Afterward, see "The Purple Heart" as this is the followup of the bombing. Japan thought it's Island Nation was inviolate - this attack proved them wrong.

                        Historical event portrayed with considerable Hollywood romance; however, Spencer Tracy is at his best as the leader of a marvelous cast to tell it all. It is difficult for us, in this day and age, to remember that China and the U.S. were allies. The Chinese cast was superb. I wish the young generation was exposed to these movies so they could realize that the Great Generation refers to freedom-loving people of a nationalities.

                                            Great story of Dolittle and his men on their historic flight to turn the war. Absorbing story and realistic special effects for the day. I saw one of these B25's at a museum and it's amazing they got off the aircraft runway and accomplished their goal. This movie is a must see.
