The operation is a covert maneuver involving members of the Israeli Army and Security Services".--Container. Hitler's SS: portrait of evil: "An overall look at Hitler's regime, focusing in on two young brothers from Berlin who join the Nazi camp"--Container. Go for broke: "The 442nd Regimental Combat Team is honored due to its make-up of mostly Japanese-American volunteers who loyally and courageously fought in World War II against their homeland and in the name of the United States. In particular, the film focuses on Lt. Mike Grayson, who holds prejudices against his men; ideas that were prevalent about all Japanese-Americans at the time. But as he watches the valiant men selflessly engage in battle, the lieutenant's biases are slowly chipped away until they are completely dissolved by the end of the war"--Container

While combing the city, Kenner is befriended by 9-year-old Saji, a native boy desperate to find his American father, unaware that the man abandoned his mother without ever marrying her. When Kenner is drugged by Jordan's associate, Henderson, and is being led to two waiting killers, Saji inadvertently causes a distraction that diverts Kenner. As a result, the narcotic has become ineffective by the time Kenner reaches his boat; and he is able to outwit Jordan, Henderson, and the two henchmen by diving overboard and remaining underwater until his would-be assassins are convinced that he has drowned. As Kenner surfaces, Saji and his mother, Anasuya, a Hindu entertainer, arrive and bring him to their house to recuperate. There, love develops between Anasuya and Kenner, while Saji gradually begins to look upon Kenner as his father. But tragedy strikes: Kenner chases Jordan through a railroad yard, and Anasuya, who has been following them, is killed by an oncoming train. After the funeral, Kenner learns that Jordan is a lover of cricket fights, and he uses Saji's pet insect to gain admittance to the secret place where the matches are held. Once they are inside, Saji is compelled to enter his cricket in a contest and then cannot bring himself to leave his pet when Kenner chases Jordan out of the place and engages him in a death struggle atop a building. When Saji's cricket is victorious, the boy runs out and discovers that Kenner has also won his battle with Jordan. At last Saji finds a father; Kenner takes the boy back to the United States with him"--AFI catalog, 1961-1970
