Trivia

This documentary that the Japanese in World War II movies were frequently played by Koreans, Hawaiians or Phillipinos. Moreover, Going Hollywood: The War Years (1988) states that many Japanese characters in films of the World War II period were actually played by Chinese actors. This was because 112,000 Japanese-Americans, who had lived in the USA for years, were transferred to relocation centers and "stripped of their property" during WW 2. See more »
