The Camp on Blood Island
For some reason, this Hammer Studios war melodrama was singled out for constant ridicule by the Monty Python troupe. The story is set at a brutal Japanese POW camp, where sadism is a way of life (the first scene is of a hapless prisoner being forced to dig his own grave). The evil commandant (played by non-Japanese Ronald Radd) has sworn to wipe out all the inmates if Japan loses the war. The English prisoners know that this has already happened, thus they're forced to keep the news secret from their captors-at least until they can stage a daring escape. The portrayal of the Japanese race in Camp on Blood Island is hardly conducive to the cause of political correctness. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
