Analyses

submitted by Clay Hudson

Judging from the title, this film probably was trying to capitalize of the anti-Japanese sentiment that permeated the zeitgeist. This was less than two years after Pearl Harbor.

The family approval from the PTA and the subtle anti-Japanese sentiment in the title could have attracted families in the community.
