Hoovers F.B.I. launched an investigation into this one.
Screw-ball film making by one of the bravest directors around. As A result of touching upon the racial issues of the day Hoovers F.B.I. launched an investigation in order to find out if the film had been financed by the communists. Sam Fuller, brave enough to walk into the line of fire with a hand held 16mm camera and awarded whatever medal it was for pulling wounded soldier after wounded soldier to safety during WW 2 accused of anti-americanism by the dawgs of the day. Remember Alf from Green Acres? He's in this film. Plays Joe the guy who won't talk to anyone yet when no one else is around he whispers happily into the ear of a gear carrying donkey. Screw-ball film making at it's best. One scene has "Buddah Head" Tanaka feeding "Baldy"(lost his hair through yellow fever) a line about massaging earth into the scalp to stimulate growth. This is a classic!
