Escape to Mindanao is a made-for-TV war drama from 1968, set in the
South Pacific. Capt. Kramer (Nehemiah Persoff) is on the hunt for the
Japanese war criminal, Takahashi (James Shigeta). Kramer follows his
enemy's ship to an island near Tahiti and arranges to capture the
soldier by posing as a freight carrier captain delivering goods. An
admiration builds as the two captains get to know each other while on
the island. Things start to go wrong after Takahashi's first mate,
Sokuri (Vic Diaz), finds weapons hidden in a cave.
