BATTLE OF THE MIDWAY (Theatrical Release USA 1942)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Battle of the Midway—short film—works on the level of a war propaganda film. It uses the considerable talents of Director John Ford to deliver its message.


This movie acts like it is telling the 1942 story of the attack on Midway.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Despite the lack of completeness in information, the film makes a good study for academics who are studying film or film history.
