“Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison” (1957); starring Robert Mitchum and Deborah Kerr. If you ignore the usual, standard anti-Japanese WWII propaganda, it’s a good movie. Great characters, great acting. Mitchum is always good.

(Trivia: America and Imperial Japan were friendly for years, until president F.D. Roosevelt decided to “fix” that “problem.” The Americans hung Japanese Prime Minister Hideki Tojo in 1948. His “crime”? Defending Japan against the unjust Western actions against it, e.g., the August 1941 oil and gasoline embargo against Japan, which prevented it from importing oil and gasoline. “Defending yourself against Roosevelt’s global Marxism” was a major crime back then. Had the embargo not occurred, the Pearl Harbor attack never would have happened — indeed, that’s why the embargo happened! Roosevelt needed an excuse to enter WWII in order to 1) help England and 2) lure Germany into declaring war on America, which it did, in Dec. 1941).
