APPOINTMENT IN TOKYO

Produced by the Army Pictorial Service, Signal Corps, with the cooperation of the Army Air Forces and the United States Navy, and released in late 1945 by Warner Bros. for the War Activities Committee, Motion Picture Industry, -Appointment in Tokyo- is a full-on propaganda film which mainly follows General MacArthur and his men from their exile from the Philippines in early 1942, through the signing of the instrument of surrender on September 1, 1945.

The film is notable for its discussion of the problems MacArthur face in Australia after the conquest of the Philippines, the American militaries "hit'em where they ain't" strategy through the Solomons and Papua New Guinea, and especially the footage from the Bataan Death March, the reconquest of the Philippines, including of Battle of Leyte, the Battle of Manila, and the rescue of American and Filipino POWs from Japanese prison camps.
