Tokyo After Dark is a 1959 drama written and directed by Norman T. Herman. The film is centered around the murder of a Japanese youth. Sgt. Robert Douglas (Rickard Long) has just completed a tour of duty in post-war Tokyo and is about to return to America with his girlfriend Sumi Fujita (Michi Kobi). While he is in a gift shop, two boys ransack his car, and Robert attempts to stop them. In the tumult, his gun goes off, shooting one of the boys. Though his superior officer, Major Bradley (Lawrence Dobkin), believes that Robert is innocent, and that the gun simply went off by accident, he reprimands the Sergeant. Robert's troubles escalate when he goes to the boy's funeral, where he is pelted with rocks, and called a "dirty American killer." With everyone against him, Robert struggles to prove his innocence while maintaining his newly found respect for the Japanese people and their customs.
