USA 1957, 147 minutes
Dir. Joshua Logan, Marlon Brando
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Classics, Drama / War, Romance


Aroview: An effective, well-acted version of James Michener's novel set during the Korean War, in which ace pilot Brando inconveniently falls in love with a Japanese actress.

Boldly addressing the issue of inter-racial marriage, which the US Army half-heartedly discouraged, this is propelled by several tragic, heartfelt twists which cut against the expected sentimental grain. Buttons and Umeki both won Best Supporting Acting Oscars. Theme song by Irving Berlin.
