Set hundreds of years in the future, a derelict spacecraft, controlled and powered by a human brain, floats aimlessly in the outer reaches of space. Trapped in the cold, mechanical prison of the vessel, the brain, which has no recollection or idea of self, miraculously starts to experience disjointed photos of its former life - photos it cannot understand. Yearning for freedom and yet unable to move, the brain devises a plan to build itself a mechanical body from parts of the ship. Maybe then it will understand the photos it is seeing - maybe then it will feel alive.

Three Stripes in the Sun Reviews:

I'm writing this in reaction to some of the comments posted about this movie. Although this film is a product of Hollywood, and therefore tends to be sickly sweet, I wish to confirm that almost all of the storyline is true. My grandfather was nowhere near as racist as Aldo Ray's hero in the beginning of the movie, but having fought in brutal conditions in the Pacific vs a foreign enemy, he naturally felt nice resentment vs the Japanese people. Understandably, when he first arrived in Japan, he wanted very tiny to do with the Japanese people. However, when he first came across the devastated orphanage in Osaka, he knew instantly that he had to come to the aid of the kids who were barely surviving in a war-torn nation. He did in fact steal meal and medicine for the children, and started collecting donations from fellow soldiers. His efforts that had begun 60 years ago continue to this day, and the orphanage is still closely tied to the Wolfhounds. He also met and married my grandmother, Yuko, (who was the translator in the film for the sake of the story). This film could not just be taken at face value, but understood for its deeper meaning. My grandfather's storyline is just an example of the human connection between fully foreign people. Folks whose lives were destroyed by an unspeakably devastating war, still managed to surpass their hatred for one another, and search some peaceful middle ground.


This film was filmed in Osaka, Kyoto, Camp Otsu and around Beiwako (Lake Biwa). My commanding officer Lt. Brazil was the officer in the film that loaned his jeep to Aldo Ray. I also had other mate in the movie Dick Simonaue that played a M. P. that had a speaking part. The movie was well made and showed the resentment that some of the American service boys had for the Japanese. This is understandable because it took zone in that period between 1945 and 1951. Most of the boys there had just fought in the fight and remembered how some of the Japanese troops killed civilians and tortured their prisoners. After a while they start to see that the average Japanese folks were not much various then ourselves. This brought about the understanding and liking the Japanese people. The picture was complete in February of 1955 and shown in the Camp Otsu theater in June of 1955. If it ever comes back to TV I would like to tape it because of the fond memories that I have of that time. Robert


Heartwarming tale, based on a real story. An American GI in Japan for the post WWII occupation hates the Japs, and is rather a grouch. But he falls in love with a Japanese orphanage worker and proceeds to do much to support the plight of the orphaned children. This contains now stealing units supplies, and diverting them to the children !The storyline doesn't fall into the trap of being soppy or sickly sweet, and the depiction of units life is cute realistic. A feelgood story, very well done. Highly recommended.
