name of this movie, please

2 posts in this topic

Please, can someone help me? This very old movie was on TV in about 1959 I never saw the last 10 minutes! It was about a soldier that had been a football star and then was made to look like he was Japanese. He was doing great as a spy until the Japanese General (?) spotted the funny little thing that he did with his hand. The General had been watching American football footage and saw an American player doing the same hand thing. I hope this is enough for someone to be able to tell me the name of the movie. I have been serching for years, but I don't remember any of the actors names either. Help.

The only American-undergoes-plastic-surgery-to-look-Japanese movie that I know of is "First Yank into Tokyo" (1945):

I haven't seen it in a long, loooonnnggg time, so I can't remember much about it, but the plot synopsis in the above link doesn't really match your description. Sorry.
