December 7, 1941. It's a gorgeous Sunday like many before in the paradise of Hawaii. It's also a day unlike any other. It is 7:55 a.m. and bombs are falling on Pearl Harbor. Lives once measured in the day-to-day of living have suddenly come down to moments to be survived.
Adapted by Oscar-winning screenwriter Stirling Silliphant from his own novel, the three-part, six-hour miniseries PEARL inevitably invoked memories of the strikingly similar FROM HERE TO ETERNITY. The focus was on three military couples living in Honolulu in and around the time of Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Race, romance, and rank-pulling ran riot in a number of interconnected plot lines, interspersed with stock footage of the attack from the 1970 theatrical feature TORA! TORA! TORA!. PEARL originally aired on ABC during a particularly busy "sweeps week," November 16, 17, and 19, 1978.
