Trivia

The war ended before filming was completed. Because of this the producers decided to rewrite the script to include references to the atomic bomb, including a side plot involving a kidnapped American nuclear physicist. See more »

Goofs

In the final battle scene, Steve Ross and Han-Soo are fighting off the Japanese troops armed with sub-machine guns. Both these guns appear to be Thompson sub-machine guns which it would have been impossible to obtain in Japan. The only Japanese submachine gun was the Type 100 model which was of a markedly different appearance to the Thompson. See more »

Better than you've heard
4 April 2000 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

When this film is mentioned at all, it is generally with a sneer. It has a reputation for being "cheesy," mostly because it feature Tom Neal in "Japanese" makeup. It's easy to judge movies from the past with today's eye and say they are racist, insensitive, etc., but keep in mind this was made while we were still at war. The disjointed ending is a result of the A-bomb being dropped before the film was finished. A new finale was thrown together so the whole thing made more sense. Not a great movie, but not bad...not bad at all.
