Tokyo Joe DVD

| DVD

Humphrey Bogart plays Saloonkeeper Joe Barrett in postwar Tokyo. With an interesting cast including Alexander Knox and an outstanding performance by Sessue Hayakawa (Bridge on the River Kwai) as the japanese gang lord. Florence Marly adds a european/international touch as White Russian Cabaret singer. The theme of postwar Japan is rarely touched on, and like Sam Fuller's 'House of Bamboo', Tokyo Joe takes a long, slow look at the underbelly of Japan's postwar milieu. Like Casablanca, this film has all the elements, haunting theme music, guns, girls and gangsters with... a whiff of geopolitical intrigue. [show more]
