Footage was culled from a number of sources, including seized Japanese newsreels. The film covers battles in the Philippines, Okinawa, and Guadalcanal, and includes rare and disturbing footage of the infamous Bataan Death March. APPOINTMENT IN TOKYO provides a documentary record of how contemporary American filmmakers and the military viewed the war in which their country was involved.
