"Thriller with Robert Stack, Robert Ryan, Cameron Mitchell and Brad Dexter (who I think were required by some kind of federal law to be cast in at least 50% of US movies between about 1955 and 1963). A gang of Army dropouts, deserters, AWOL & dishonorable discharge types terrorize Japan with the kinds of crimes only Americans [sic] would commit. Incorruptible and untouchable hero sergeant Stack comes to the rescue and wins the girl too. Interesting to see on recent viewing that there is a clear suggestion that Ryan falls in love with Stack and that Mitchell's conduct is in part motivated by his being a rejected lover. Japan in the 1950's. [Incorrectly titled The Bamboo Curtain by some. . .]" D. Don Siegel
