Tora! Tora! Tora! (1970) Directed by Richard Fleischer, Kinji Fukasaku and Toshio Masuda. James Whitmore as Vice Adm. William F. Halsey, Jr.
Halsey: Bust me. Break me. Court-martial me. Draw and quarter me. If you think that they’re gonna send any one of my ships on convoy duty in the Atlantic… I tell you Kim, I think they’ve gone nuts back in Washington. Now, how in the hell am I supposed to fight a task force if they send my destroyers and my cruisers to the Atlantic? That damn ocean is a swimming hole compared to the Pacific!
