In the latest offering from the World War II Foundation, Hollywood icon Tom Selleck narrates a documentary that focuses on the personal stories of the people at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, who lived through the events that drew the U.S. into the Second World War.

Remember Pearl Harbor, which won an Indie International Film Fest Award in late October, is the official film of the 75th anniversary commemorations of Pearl Harbor in Hawaii this December.

“Having Tom lend his voice to this project is very meaningful,” said Tim Gray ’89, chairman of the World War II Foundation and the film’s director and producer. “Besides having a truly outstanding voice, he was a member of the National Guard when he was younger and obviously knows Honolulu and Pearl Harbor well from his days filming Magnum, P.I. in Hawaii.”

The film features interviews with veterans, Hawaiian citizens and even a rare interview with Mitsuo Fuchida, the leader of the Japanese air attack on December 7, 1941.

The Foundation’s 17 films (with more in production) rank in the top five most requested programs by PBS stations nationally. More info at
