Gregg Toland, the master cinematographer of Citizen Kane, shot and directed this U.S. Navy documentary (1942) on the bombing of Pearl Harbor—a film that so displeased its sponsors that it was never shown to the public in its feature-length version during this period. Lieutenant Commander John Ford shares the director's credit, though Ford said, “I helped him along, I was there, but Gregg was in charge of it.” In any case, it won an Academy Award. 82 min.
