Now it can be told — even if it’s total fiction!  James Cagney takes his rough & tumble ways to Tokyo to scoop the existence of a world domination conspiracy 11 years before Pearl Harbor!  It’s The Front Page meets Yojimbo circa 1945, except that Cagney’s scenarists have Tokyo militarists behaving like Chicago mobsters. Yes, most of the villains are played by Hollywood actors in yellowface makeup. A staple of old-time TV broadcasts, this independent production looks good in a new HD remaster, and vintage Cagney never disappoints. On Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
