From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

The Catch is a Japanese film from 1961 directed by Nagisa Oshima. It is based on a novella by Kenzaburō Ōe about the relationship between a wartime Japanese village and a captured African American serviceman.

The Catch has not traditionally been viewed as one of Oshima's major works, though it did introduce thematic explorations of bigotry and xenophobia, themes which would be explored in greater depth in the later documentary Diary of Yunbogi, and feature films Death by Hanging and Three Resurrected Drunkards.[1]

American actor and civil rights advocate Hugh Hurd portrayed the prisoner.[2] Rentaro Mikuni and Sadako Sawamura also star in the film.[3]
