A modern aircraft carrier is thrown back in time to 1941 near Hawaii, just hours before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
Lead actor Kirk Douglas' son, Peter Douglas, was the film's producer and the main force behind the movie, his first credit as a producer at age 25, he had been working on the film since he had been 23.

Before the storm, the carrier captain orders the destroyer escorts back to Pearl because "there's no need for them to go through THIS". In fact, no carrier battle group can send its destroyers back for any storm at all, because these escorts form the main defense against submarines, which are the most dangerous threat against the carrier (and which are not affected by any weather conditions).
