GO FOR BROKE

I'm currently working on a personal project and one of the films I came across in my research is this gem, Go For Broke. Produced by MGM, released in 1951, the film is a retelling of the infamous 442nd, employing Japanese-Americans many, many key roles. In 1951! The 442nd story has been told many times since over the years, and this film isn't perfect, but after watching many studio films of the era, consistently enraged at the Hollywood representation of Asian-Americans at the time, this film is a fucking miracle. Moving stuff.
