Reviews

Newspaper editor Nick Condon (James Cagney) is the crusading chief of the Tokyo Chronicle in 1920s Japan. He has his suspicions about Japanese plans for future expansion, suspicions that are confirmed when he runs an article accusing Japanese Premier Tanaka (John Emery) and Colonel Tojo (Robert Armstrong) of planning world conquest and gets a visit from the Imperial Police. Then one of his reporters, Ollie Miller (Wallace Ford) and his wife Edith (Rosemary DeCamp) are murdered shortly after entrusting the Tanaka Memorial, a document that proves his theory. Condon must get himself and the document out of the country, but the Japanese send Chinese spy Iris Hilliard (Sylvia Sidney) to seduce him in an attempt to retrieve the document. Made soon after the collapse of Germany but before Japan s surrender in the Second World War, the film carries a strong anti-fascist message that was aimed at both Axis powers.

Format: DVD
As a correction to the previous reviewer's opinion, the DVD from the listings' Studio 'Eureka Entertainment', plays perfectly, without judder, wobble and most importantly, without any logo appearing the the films entirety.

As for the film, this is a classic James Cagney. Ok, it's in black and white and maybe the music score is a bit violin-ey/tinny, but it's a good story and there's no special effects.

Format: DVD
This is not a WW2 film. The story is based around true events which occurred in 1927. While far too many of the actors portraying Japanese characters are white and wearing makeup, I personally feel they do so with considerable sensitivity, especially as the film was made in 1945. This is a very stylishly shot film, with Cagney on top form, but avoid the Laserlight release - the print quality is very poor.

Format: DVD
Not one of Jimmy Cagney's best films. Made in 1945 it did not have at its disposal all the details of Japan's intentions on imperialist policy. The Japanese were depicted as the usual cut-out degenerates and although John Emery produced a decent caricature, the general impression was that the producers were clutching at straws.

Bought this for my dad for a nostalgia trip. He said he enjoyed it although it does show its age in terms of the lack of believabillty in the fighting scenes.....no different though than any action movie of this era.
