THREE STRIPES IN THE SUN. Lobby card unsigned. Color, 14x11. Promotion for the 1955 film, Three Strips in the Sun. Based on The Gentle Wolfhound, a New Yorker article written by E. J. Kahn Jr. Set in postwar Japan, the film concerns the activities of three U.S.-occupation soldiers: Sergeant Hugh O'Reilly (Aldo Ray), the Colonel (Phil Carey) and Corporal Neeby Muhlendorf (Dick York). Though he hates the Japanese with a passion, Sergeant O'Reilly softens as he gets to know the local citizenry. Soon, the hard-bitten sergeant is sneaking food provisions to Japanese children and donating his GI pay towards the building of an orphanage; he also falls in love with lovely interpreter Yuko (Mitsuko Kimura). Meanwhile, the Colonel handles his responsibilities with slick, military precision, while Corporal Muhlendorf spends his time looking for "action." Serving as technical advisor is Master Sergeant Hugh O'Reilly, the real-life model for the Aldo Ray character. Slightly creased. Stamp and pencil note (unknown hand) on verso (no show through). Fine condition.
