Sam Fuller's 1955 crime noir thriller was the first American film made in Japan after WWII, and features stunning photography of a pre-modern Tokyo dominated by images of cherry blossoms and Kabuki theatre. Robert Stack stars as Eddie Kenner, a US army operative sent to Tokyo to investigate the underhanded dealings of an ex-GI named Sandy Dawson (Robert Ryan). Dawson has taken up robbing ammunition trains, and is also the kingpin of a local crime racket. Kenner must garner the criminal's trust without letting on his true intentions, and he is aided in his endeavour by Mariko (Shirley Yamaguchi), the wife of a dead American soldier.
