Nagamasa Kawakita visited von Sternberg (who had been the producer of Arnold Fanck's Daughter of the Samurai, which Kawakita had watched being filmed in 1937) in New York. They talked about the co-production between Japan and the U.S. which would in a way make up for the stupidity of the war. Kawakita approached the Toho Company for a speedy production that could be released while the story was still news. But Toho was switching almost exclusively to monster movies and had no interest in drama, no matter how topical. Momentum faltered until Osawa resigned from Toho and he and Kawakita formed a new company, Daiwa, solely to make Anatahan.

Keywords:   Kawakita, Toho, topical, Osawa, Anatahan
