Nicely done war thriller with Cagney as a suave but pugnacious newspaper
reporter in Japan who comes into possession of secret war plans. The
are the work of a fascist Baron Tanaka who pushes the war agenda for the
right-wing militarists over the objections of those opposed to war. The
characters are interesting, and while many are static yet well-played,
a few others are nicely fleshed out and grow during the plot. Cagney,
of the newspapermen and the female spy have some plot movement to develop
their characters with. Even the villains, who could easily be cardboard,
are well-played and exhibit human motivation. Obviously this is not a
documentary, but it's also not pure melodrama either.
Perhaps the most visually interesting areas of the film are the contrasts
between beautiful, high-class modernist settings, a representation of
traditional Japanese architecture, and gritty realistically-dressed
scenes. All the more interesting that the good production and pretty
were created in Hollywood backlots in 1945 during the war. While this is
not a huge film, the production design is as good as anything from the
golden age. There is a lot of eye-candy in the set design, tastefully
filmed and a treat to view.
The politics and cultural sensitivities of the film are also fascinating
far more balanced and subtle than other reviewers seem to indicate here.
Cagney's character is well-immersed in Japanese culture and aware of the
social issues of the time. He speaks Japanese, in addition to Chinese,
is a highly-skilled Judo aficionado. The film portrays Japanese
of the war as well-meaning but fairly easily countered by ruthless
militarists and their secret police which is likely generally accurate.
Surely similar struggles played out in Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy,
with Stalinist Russia, Mao's China and other 20th century totalitarian
dictatorships both right and left.
This film is not anti-Japanese; it's anti-Fascist. Those who claim to be
unaware of the difference would imply that Japanese are Fascists. That
would be unfortunately ignorant.
