Stationed in Japan during the Korean War, U.S. Air Force Major Lloyd "Ace" Gruver falls for the beautiful Japanese actress Hana-ogi (Miiko Taka). However, he is hesitant to pursue the relationship due to the unfortunate example of his crew chief, Airman Joe Kelly (Red Buttons). Kelly, against official military advice and the prejudices of his commanding officers, married a Japanese woman, Katsumi (Miyoshi Umeki), and his military career has suffered ever since.

Back in those days, more than 10.000 US soldiers did indeed married a Japanese woman but it was something more or less prohibited or at least discouraged by the US army which was quite intriguing. Unfortunately, they actually messed up the tone. Indeed, even if it should have been a tragic romantic drama, it was fairly often rather frivolous. Even more problematic was how they portrayed the Japanese people though. First, you had the fact that the only Japanese male character was played by” read more

Racism - Movies (32 movies items)

" Airman Joe Kelly (Red Buttons), who is Ace's enlisted crew chief, is about to wed a Japanese woman, Katsumi (Miyoshi Umeki), in spite of the disapproval of the United States military establishment, which will not recognize the inter-racial marriage. The Air Force, including Ace, is against the marriage. Ace and Joe have an argument during which Ace uses a racial slur to describe Katsumi. Ace eventually apologizes, then agrees to be Joe's best man at the wedding. (Wikipedia)"
