Never seen the complete video - thanks for sharing, Buck.

Btw, the film does not mention the signature SNAFU that happened on the Japanese copy of the surrender document.

The Canadian representative, Colonel Lawrence Moore Cosgrave, signed below his line instead of above it on the Japanese copy, resulting in everyone after him to sign one line below the intended one. This was attributed to Col. Cosgrave being blind in one eye, as he lost its sight during WW I. When the discrepancy was pointed out to General Sutherland, he crossed-out the pre-printed name titles of the Allied nations and rewrote by hand the titles in their correct relative positions. This alteration was initially not acceptable to the Japanese, in order to make it so, Sutherland then initialed(as an abbreviated signature) each alteration; and the Japanese representatives did not demur further. [quoted from Wikipedia]
