... Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo

8:00 PM, TCM

World War II was still going on when Hollywood offered up this dramatization of the Doolittle raid, a bold air attack on Japan just a few weeks after Pearl Harbor. Spencer Tracy plays the mission's leader, Lt. Col. James Doolittle, with Van Johnson, Robert Walker and Phyllis Thaxter also in the cast. Directed by Mervyn LeRoy, the 1944 film earned an Oscar nomination for cinematography and a win for special effects.
