Prisoner of Japan
The macabre, overripe war melodrama Prisoner of Japan was produced and directed by the always fascinating Arthur Ripley. Alan Baxter plays the title character, astronomical researcher David Bowman. Stationed on a remote Pacific Island, Bowman is captured by Japanese secret agent Matsuru (Ernst Dorian) when the island is invaded. Ordered to cooperate with the Japanese captors, Bowman is expected to utilize his talents to guide enemy submarines towards American battleships, lest harm befall his sweetheart Toni Chase (Gertrude Michael). Eventually, however, hero and heroine are able to communicate with the U.S. fleet and foil the villains -- but the price is a precious one. Corinna Mura, best remembered as the guitar-playing nightclub singer in Casablanca, plays a major role in Prisoner of Japan. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
