I was there for the filming of this movie
8 December 2001 | by (Tacoma Washington) – See all my reviews

This movie was filmed in Osaka, Kyoto, Camp Otsu and around Beiwako (Lake Biwa). My commanding officer Lt. Brazil was the officer in the movie that loaned his jeep to Aldo Ray. I also had another friend in the film Dick Simonaue that played a M. P. that had a speaking part. The film was well made and showed the resentment that some of the American service men had for the Japanese. This is understandable because it took place in that period between 1945 and 1951. Most of the men there had just fought in the war and remembered how some of the Japanese soldiers killed civilians and tortured their prisoners. After a while they begin to see that the average Japanese people were not much different then ourselves. This brought about the understanding and liking the Japanese people. The picture was finished in February of 1955 and shown in the Camp Otsu theater in June of 1955. If it ever comes back to TV I would like to tape it because of the fond memories that I have of that time. Robert
