Movie Info

Billed third, Spencer Tracy plays Lt. Col. James P. Doolittle, who led the bombing raid over Tokyo. Most of the footage concerns pilot Ted Lawson (Van Johnson), who loses a leg while escaping from China after the attack; other subplots concern the meticulous preparations for the raid, and the individual exploits of those Doolittle flyers who crashed into the sea or were captured by the Japanese. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

After an overly mushy first half, the movie redeems itself with a second act that is decidedly dark and dreary and an extended air combat sequence that's still amazing nearly 70 years later.

It's winsome because of its sincerity, painting a sympathetic portrait of the men who carried out this dangerous mission.

wonderful WWII propaganda drama with sincere performances by the cast. Special effects bombing sequence of Tokyo isn't bad either.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

Mervyn LeRoy's fact-based WWII action-drama was extremely popular due to subject matter, star power (Spencer Tracy), Oscar-winning effects, and intelligent script by Dalton Trumbo, later blacklisted and one of the Hollywood Ten.

Audience Reviews for Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo

Some of the footage of the scenery flying by on the way to this historic bombing run is way ahead of its time. Robert Mitchum on the rise. Van Johnson established.
