Original film by Masaki Kobayashi starring Charles Boyer. A Japanese naval commander compromises his opponent's wife to get tactical information, but commits suicide rather than face the consequences. This DVD is a re-issue of the 1934 film called The Battle, with about 1.500 feet edited, an added foreword, which mentions Pearl Harbor, as well as an epilogue about the cowardice of Hara-Kiri. These changes transform the film into an anti-Japanese wartime propaganda film. 63 minutes.
