The Japanese admiral Yamamoto expresses his regret over the Pearl Harbor attack, making the famous quote "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant, and fill him with a terrible resolve". Yamamoto said something similar in other films about the Pearl Harbor attack, Tora! Tora! Tora! (1970) and Pearl Harbor (2001) (which omits the second part of the sentence). Despite the persistence of this quote in movie history, it has never been officially attributed to Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto in real life; no one heard him explicitly say it, nor has it ever been found within any of his writings. Yamamoto had indeed withdrawn to his room after the attack in a depressed state, but it was reportedly because the Japanese Foreign Ministry had failed to declare war on the USA prior to the assault, which made Yamamoto's actions an unprovoked attack rather than a military engagement.
Men like Dick Best are the reason we're going to win this war.
In a beginning scene (at minute 11 seconds 40) it appears a Bialetti Moka coffee pot somewhere in Pearl Harbour. Patented in 1933, The first pots were exported from Italy well after the end of the war, and started to become popular in the fifties.
The end credits are played over black and white footage of the ballroom singer (played by Ana Maria Lombo who is also known as Annie Trousseau) in the Honolulu officer's club seen earlier in the film performing the entire song "All or Nothing At All".
