Is this the movie that talks about the Tanaka Memorial (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanaka_Memorial) ?

It's an interesting look into the wartime mentality here in the states...as a note of interest, the dedication to the "Hard fighting" American Japanese at the beginning of the film was added later on, after the film had been in circulation.

I was considering uploading that to my google video collection. I have other similarly themed films that I am hedging about uploading - as the subject matter is of a similar (somewhat) uncomfortable nature.

For myself I find these kinds of things interesting...the problem is that you never know how some people will interpret, react and respond to these dated bit's of "informational history"...some people lack the intelligence, tact and temperament to discuss these types of issues without putting their "foot in their mouth". These issues (sometimes) tend to call out the trolls from their dark, damp places...

It's a tough judgment call and a shame too, I'll bet you have some interesting clips in the vault...

Apparently this movie was meant to be part of the "Why We Fight" series but its shooting got behind schedule, the film was released in the US only after Japan surrendered.

Here is a similar movie:
