Continuity mistake: In the scene where Rafe is fighting for Britain his plane gets hit. As it goes down into the water, it is day. Later when they show him swimming out of the plane and to the surface, it is night. (00:41:30 - 01:10:10)
Pearl Harbor is a docudrama depicting a love triangle between Danny, Rafe, and Evelyn centered around the December, 7 1941 bombing of Pearl Harbor by the Empire of Japan. Also depicted was the courageous attack on Tokyo by Colonel Jimmy Doolittle and his Raiders flying B-25 Liberators off the flight deck of an aircraft carrier.
Rafe: Ma'am, I'm never gonna be an English teacher, but I know why I'm here, to be a pilot, and you don't dogfight with manuals, you don't fly with gauges, I mean it's all about feeling and speed and lettin' that plane become like it's a part of your body, and that manual says that a guy who's a slow reader can't be a good pilot... That file says I'm the *best* pilot in this room... Ma'am, please... Don't take my wings.
Question: Why does Evelyn get a Purple Heart? As far as I understand, the only way to get it, is if you are wounded in combat.
