Synopsis:
At the end of the Second World War, the editor of the famed army weekly "Yank" magazine (Golden Globe-winner George Nader) flies across the Pacific with his staff to document life in post-war Japan. Handed an impossibly tight deadline, they head to Tokyo's black market to search for story ideas, where they stumble upon underworld con-artist Joe Butterfly (Oscar-nominee Burgess Meredith). Butterfly offers the Yank staff an alternative to their run-down offices, setting them up in a plush, private mansion - but the new headquarters, frequented by a few local ladies, are seriously against regulations.
As the Yank staffers - one played by war hero and Hollywood legend Audie Murphy, among others - scramble to put together an issue, the sticky situation they find themselves in grows increasingly absurd, and laughs abound.
