THIRTY SECONDS OVER TOKYO

This is the true story of the Doolittle Raid, in which the U.S. armed forces, desperate to strike back at Japan after the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, executed a daring and unprecedented airstrike on Tokyo via a fleet of 16 B-25 bombers launched from aircraft carriers. Spencer Tracy is Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolittle, heading a cast that includes Van Johnson, Robert Walker, Phyllis Thaxter and Robert Mitchum. Noted for its verisimilitude and attention to detail, the film incorporates documentary footage from the actual Doolittle Raid, and won the OscarĀ® for Best Special Effects. DIR Mervyn LeRoy; SCR Dalton Trumbo, from the book by Ted W. Lawson and Robert Considine; PROD Sam Zimbalist. U.S., 1944, b&w, 138 min, 35mm. NOT RATED
