Operation Pacific

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

World War II rages across the Pacific and Lieutenant Commander Duke E Gifford (John Wayne) is in the thick of it. He evacuates children from enemy-held islands, oversees the development of torpedoes at Pearl Harbour and prowls the depths in the submarine Thunderfish for a chance to aim his improved "tin fish" - torpedoes - at the enemy.
