Frank Sinatra: The House I Live In
It’s obvious that, although the film was built around the song The House I Live In, its screenplay was not written by the songwriters. While Allan and Robinson were a couple of dyed-in-the-wool leftists who wrote a song to combat prejudice against “all races and religions”, the screenplay felt comfortable using anti-Japanese slurs that undercut the message of the song. Luckily, the virulent anti-Japanese feeling in America during and after World War II was not universal, and faded gradually over time. See another post for an example of a post-war Japanese pioneer into American pop culture.
