    I liked this film. It may not be plausible to some but I think it is a good "what if" movie. I think there were often times that American soldiers had brief and temporary friendships with the enemy, especially officers. My dad (a captain in the Army Air Corps) had drinks with a German Captain, they were both interested in the same Italian woman. After the war she married the German. People act differently when confronted with common goals, interests and problems especially on an individual level so I don't think anyone should assume they know the Japanese mind. Sinatra and Clint Walker were fine. It was good to see Japanese actors playing the parts of Japanese soldiers. The Toho company that produced a lot of Japanese films in Japan also was involved in special effects alongside other Japnese crew in producing this film. I certainly think these Japanese actors and crew had something to do with the prevailing attitudes of the characters in the film.

    This film appears to be a good test of intelligence.Why are there no subtitles to the Japanese speaking?Duh--because the whole point is to change your perspective. That it's not just about an English-speaking-centric view. That there's another side to the war that's just like us. We can't understand them the way they can't understand us. And I thought the movie might not have been subtle enough.This movie was quite good. Sinatra gives a credible performance and the script writing is relatively realistic while doing the job it's trying to do, which isn't easy, since it attempts (and largely succeeds) in being literary.The idea was good; the storytelling was good because it felt like a story, not just a message; and you don't get a Hollywood ending. Thank goodness. It's a very honest movie.

    ...would make this foolish movie.Tommy Sands gives the dumbest and worst performance of all time.

    I don't know why Frank Sinatra decided to direct, finance and star in this film but all three were awful decisions. He was an Academy Award winning actor by this point and was actually very good but this film is horrid. It's an implausible plot, as the Japanese would never, ever have agreed to live side-by-side with Americans during the war. The hatred on both sides was too great for this to have even been considered. No subtitles but a great deal of Japanese being spoken so you're left with trying to decipher what they're saying. The actual star of this film was supposed to be Clint Walker but, because of Sinatra's involvement, Walker didn't get top billing and that's a shame, as he is the only one here who actually acts. The cinematography is beautiful in this film but it's a real mess. Sinatra should have stuck with what he knew!

  • The Answer to the name of the radio operator!!

    The radio operator is portrayed by actor Tony Bill. He also was a prolific screenwriter and producer and his lengthy profile is in the TCM Archives. I remember his name because I saw the film when I was 14 when it opened in Flusing, Queens, New York in 1965.

    Not too bad World War II drama. Frank Sinatra's performance is lacking sincerity, but the rest of the cast does a good job. Good story, but a little predictable. Well produced, good cinematography.

    Released in France under the title " L`ile Des Braves", picture is a nice 2.35:1 anamorphic image with English audio although slight downside is that Japanese sequences have no English subtitles.
