Slab Cinema: Blood on the Sun
Frank Lloyd (1945)
Classic tough guy James (“You Dirty Rat”) Cagney plays Nick Condon, an American newspaperman in Tokyo who must fight a Japanese plot to bomb the U.S., in Blood on the Sun — a film that gives a fairly clear indication of the levels of anti-Japanese sentiment (note the release year) in the post-Pearl Harbor era. Let’s hope things are a bit better now. See Caucasian actors play Japanese characters, plus: Jimmy does judo! Outdoor screening at La Tuna Bar and Grill. Thursday, June 29. Pre-show at dusk, feature at 9 pm Probandt and Cevallos, 212-9373. Admission by donation. Bring chairs and blankets, no coolers.
