Good morning it's Wednesday and we all know what that means, time to dig into our collective psyches and post a clip to amuse and entertain. It's our weekly installment of Movie Clip Wednesday, hosted by Milk River Madman If you wish to play. Post a clip on your site. Try to make it 3 minutes or less, then stop by MRM's site say I'm up, with the title of your movie. You can also see who else is playing. And find some very interesting and differing perspectives on a single topic. The topic for this week: Best movie from the 1940s. Another week spent watching way too many clips. So many good movies were produced in the forties. This week I chose: Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo. I chose it for two reasons, 1. That World War 2 dominated everything during the forties. 2. I recently read the obituary of Colonel Bill Bower, he passed away on January 10 at the age of 93. He was the last surviving pilot involved in the Doolittle raid. The movie is a 1944 war film. It is based on the true story of America's first retaliatory air strike against Japan four months after the December 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The first clip is the trailer. The second clip shows the takeoff from the USS Hornet much of the footage was from the actual takeoff of the mission. And the third is of the bomb run. The last 2 clips are quite long the first 4 minutes of the second and the first 3 minutes of the third give you the just of it. Please enjoy!
