Storm Over the Pacific

Storm Over the Pacific

'Storm Over the Pacific', originally titled in Japan as "Hawai Middouei daikaikusen: Taiheiyo no arashi" is the first color widescreen war film from Toho Studios. It as made in 1960 by many of the same individuals behind the Godzilla franchise, such as producer Tomoyuki Tanaka special effects director Eiji Tsuburaya, and assistant special effects director Teruyoshi Nakano. The film was directed by Shuei Matsubayashi.

It was released some years later in the United States in a dubbed and abridged 98 minute version directed by Hugo Grimaldi as "I Bombed Pearl Harbor".


The film follows a young Japanese bombardier Lt. Koji Kitami (Yosuke Natsuki) aboard the aircraft carrier Hiryu and his participation in two battles in the Pacific during World War II, the attack on Pearl Harbor and the Battle of Midway. His faith in his leaders and his country remains strong through the successful campaigns of the early war, but is severely shaken by the disastrous events during the battle of Midway.
