Description by OLDIES.com:
The film's evocative art direction won an Academy Award.
- BLOOD ON THE SUN is loosely based on a true story. The Tanaka Plan was a real document that was delivered into the hands of the international press in 1927. The document detailed Japanese plans for a war with China, Korea, and the United States, including an airplane attack on Pearl Harbor. The document was not taken seriously by politicians at the time.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 34 ratings.
A neat little action/thriller/spy drama. Cagney is great as a hard-nosed reporter for an American newspaper in Japan prior to the outbreak of WWII. A Japanese scheme for war gets dropped in his lap like a satchel of dynamite, and its owners are eager to get it back. Sylvia Sidney is beautiful and stunning as a Chinese shill for the Japanese...or is she? Wonderful supporting cast. Never a dull moment. A top-notch film.
