Sayonara (1957) - Marlon Brando DVD
Brando's brilliantly conceived, Oscar®-nominated lead performance provides the dramatic heart of Sayonara, a poignant outcry against bigotry that received 10 Academy Award® nominations and garnered four Oscars®. James Garner, Red Buttons and the lovely Miyoshi Umeki co-star in this poignant and powerful film hailed as "an enchanting love story. One of the year's top ranking motion pictures" (Los Angeles Mirror-News).
Major Lloyd Gruver (Marlon Brando), a Korean War flying ace reassigned to Japan, staunchly supports the military's opposition to marriages between American troops and Japanese women. But that's before Gruver experiences a love that challenges his own deeply set prejudices. . .and plunges him into conflict with the U.S. Air Force and Japan's own cultural taboos.
