Movie Monday: Midway
Directed by Jack Smight and starring a glittering cast including Henry Fonda, Charlton Heston, Robert Wagner and Christina Kokubo, Midway is an action packed WWII film that checks all the boxes. Centered around the Battle of Midway against the Imperial Japanese Navy in the Pacific, the film simultaneously follows both sides from chief strategist Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto and Captain Matt Garth of the American forces in the planning and execution of the pivotal encounter. With a dash of romance and a generous dose of combat action, this is the perfect war film for a chilly Monday evening! Cockpit USA approved.
