Aloha All,
A new documentary has swept across the internet. This DVD or VHS video has more ACCURATE political, strategic, tactical and technical information that any other on the market OR any coming! Timeless-Video.com has competitively priced and packaged the documentary as well.

For more check out their web site:

Aloha All,
Thought you might find a select film clip in this VHS/DVD to be of great interest. Photographers Mate First Class Clyde Daugherty on USS Argonne took two rolls of 16mm color film during the attack. Alas, the film was lost in the National Archives for years.

In 1982, a US Navy media historian located the film and found it had turned to "monochromatic red". He contacted Clyde about the find. The next day Clyde arrived [unexpectedly] to view the film he had never seen [except to film it].

Portions of the two reels are in this VHS/DVD. Clyde had panned Battleship Row and parts of the second attack wave. Then he changed reels to catch the final arrival of USS Nevada at Hospital Point. Dive bombers were still hitting the ship after she nosed onto the shoreline.

His film of the USS Shaw explosion was copied in B&W for the NBC film series, Victory At Sea, prior to the miss-filing of the film at the National Archives. Their version is thus better reproduced than from the original.
HTH,

Aloha All,
In the quest for knowledge, I have decided to 'bite the bullet' and obtain a video of the above mentioned "Clyde Daugherty" footage from the National Archives and Records Administration...and the "Eric Haakenson" footage, too, on the same video. It may take upwards of six-eight weeks.

For those new to movie film of the actual attack, we are slowly determining who were behind the cameras, why and how they took select footage and why they did not take scenes which we wish were taken.

The "Eric Haakenson" footage is unique in that this was 8mm color film taken from USS Solace, the hospital ship on the starboard quarter from USS Nevada. Haakenson was an Army doctor visiting the ship and took home movies that weekend of harbor activies and the combat action on 6 and 7 Dec. After he filmed the USS Arizona explosion in color, he went to work as a doctor helping casualties.

Here is the NARA detail of what that "Haakenson" film contains:The first part shows SBD;'s doing touch and go's on Ford Island. The camera moves over and you can see the LEXINGTON still moored before her departure on the 5th. A 77 foot ELCO PT boat goes by and drops a depth charge in the East Loch. (they were fishing for fish - not subs), then for three frames of the NEVADA coming in to moor on the 5th. Her painted on bow wave shows. THEN comes the attack: The camera is stopped and started several times during the filming. The scenes you have seen over the years is all the footage. The whole series on the 7th is only 418 frames. That is not much screen time. At that point, I imagine the doctor got called away to other duties. It picks up again on the 8th. You can see the USS RALEIGH (CL-7) listing at her moorings (distance view, remember the SOLACE changed her moorings) and the USS NORTHAMPTON (CA-26) sails past with an oiler. End of reel.

There is yet another bit of well known footage which has finally been identified by cameraman. I was told by an archivist that in the book: "Eyes of the Fleet", is reference to this movie film taken along Battleship Row. "Navy photographer Sutherland got a boat in which he set up his 35mm Mitchell motion picture camera, so with a boat operator, between 9 and 10 AM on Sunday, 7 December 1941, he obtained a sizeable footage of motion pictures of the damaged and burning battleships that had been hit by the attacking Japanese airplanes."
Cheers,
David
