Blood on the Sun
Nick Condon (James Cagney), an American newspaper reporter working in Tokyo during the 1930s, refuses to toe the official line on the expansionist policies of the anti-democratic Imperialist government. Realising that Condon isn’t going to co-operate, the Japanese authorities decide to seize him and force him to reveal his valuable information and contacts...
Winning an Oscar for Art Direction, this Frank Lloyd-directed classic from 1945 sees James Cagney in superb form as the tenacious reporter who risks everything to reveal the truth. Performing all his own stunts, Cagney took intensive training in judo for the film’s impressively authentic action sequences, and Blood on the Sun ranks among the first of the American martial arts movies.
