Synopsis:
While much of the world watched the early success of 'Mein Kampf' and the bombing of Pearl Harbour was ten years in the future, few were aware of the existence of an oriental 'Hitler' ... Baron Giichi Tankara. But the war had already started in Japan for James Condon, American journalist and editor of the Japanese Chronicle, whose intuition has led him to believe that major trouble was brewing.
The role of Condon, man of hard words and harder fists, is just the kind of tough guy that first brought James Cagney stardom and, in this movie, you will not be disappointed as he battles to stay alive long enough to warn the rest of the world against a Japanese militarist plot called the 'Tanaka Plan' that has world domination as its objective. This is one of the first American martial arts movies and features some gripping action with Cagney doing his own stunts for which he trained intensively with Ken Kuniyuki, a fifth degree judo master, before shooting.
