Tora Tora Tora - Hollywood Cult War Classics Graphic Movie Poster.
Tora! Tora! Tora!is a 1970 epic war film that dramatizes the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.The film was produced by Elmo Williams and directed by Richard Fleischer, Toshio Masuda and Kinji Fukasaku.It was Masuda and Fukasaku's first English-language film, and first non-Japanese film.
The tora of the title is the two-syllable Japanese codeword used to indicate that complete surprise had been achieved. Japanese being a language with many homophones, it is a coincidence that tora also means "tiger".
Aboard his flagship, Admiral Yamamoto solemnly informs his staff that their primary target – the American aircraft carriers – were not at Pearl Harbor, having departed days previously to search for Japanese vessels. Lamenting that the declaration of war arrived after the attack began, Yamamoto notes that nothing would infuriate the U.S. more and ominously concludes: "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve."
