You missed the Arizona Memorial in the back ground. When thy first show the girls on the boat in Pearl just as the camra pans down you can see the upper tips of the Memorial in the back ground.

Another small item is that nests (groups) of destroyers were not attacked as portrayed in the movie (albiet Knox class frigates).

I know a USS DOBBIN (AD-4) survivor that I talk to, and he was quite convinced that the Japanese attackers avoided the nests of destroyers.  Dobbin was nested with destroyers WORDEN (352), HULL (350), DEWEY (349), PHELPS (360), and MAC DONOUGH (351),  just NE of Ford Island at X-RAY 2, and he said they were just back from manuevers and were quite quick to respond to the attack. He states that many of the planes actually turned away from the nest due to concentrated fire.  He also mentions that they shot the shrouds off the DOBBIN's mainmast.

Here is one, Evelyn goes to the command post and The Major says they will be taking off in a couple of hours. back to the ship they pick up Japanese ship 400 yrds away and the have to decide wether to go or not so the launch. Later the Gen. tells the President they had to launch 12 hours early. So Evelyn was there 12 hours to soon. It looks like the editing or the time line wasn't right in the script.

Being a retired sailor, my question on that particular scene is simply "how can another vessel (of any size) get that close to a carrier at sea before anyone says or does something?"
Heck, at 400 yards you can darn near hit them with a wrench!!

- ALL THE ZEROS IN THIS MOVIE WERE PAINTED GREEN. They should have been light gray (but you guys knew that for months). Basically they used the flyable A6M5 Model 52 Zero (tail-code 61-120) and two flyable A6M3 model 22s.


actually most zeros were green, but i saw about 3 gray zeros

Aloha,
The "3 gray Zeros" were replicas of the D3A "VAL" dive bomber.
HTH,

My best recommendation on this subject is for anyone who is interested in the true and falsehoods of the movie is to buy or attempt to rent the National Geographic VHS tape called "Pearl Harbor - Beyond the Movie".

  They do a very good job of sorting out what was accurate and what was inaccurate about the movie and in some cases why they stretched the truth or even made up some situations.  

   There was even a special edition boxed set release of the movi that actually included the National Geographic tape along with the P.H. Movie.

My main problem with Pearl Harbor the film id that it shows sailors running around blindly and not returning fire for about 15 minutes. When in reality USS advocet and USS California returned fire in only two minutes
