The Burlington Route, Rio Grande, and Western Pacific Railroads produced this tourism promotional film in the 1950's to highlight the California Zephyr luxury train, running between Chicago and San Francisco.  The California Zephyr (the CZ, or "Silver Lady") was a passenger train operated by the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy (CB&Q), Denver & Rio Grande Western (D&RGW) and Western Pacific railroads, all which dubbed it "the most talked about train in America"...

This short newsreel, produced for the home market, shows the first offensive action of the Pacific War by the U.S. Navy: a raid on Makin Island in the Marshalls conducted by the USS Yorktown battle group under command of Admiral William Halsey. The film claims to show Japanese cruisers and even an aircraft carrier sunk by American forces, but in reality there were no such enemy losses.

This short and apparently hastily assembled newsreel shows the events of December 7th, 1941 and expresses deep outrage at the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.  Due to classification issues at the time the film was made, very little of the damage to Pearl Harbor itself is shown; rather the film focuses on damage to civilian areas of Waikiki and Honolulu. Due to the lack of material available there are some laughable errors in the rather earnest film, including the presence of a plane...
