  • Rosalind Russell plays Mrs. Jacoby, a Jewish widow living in Brooklyn whose only son has been killed in World War II by the Japanese. Her daughter, Alice (Madlyn Rhue), is married to businessman Jerome (Ray Danton), and the couple convinces the reluctant widow to join them on a trip to Japan. On the boat trip Mrs. Jacoby meets Koichi Asano (Alec Guinness), a Japanese businessman who like herself has lost family members in the war. In spite of these grave personal losses, Asano and Jacoby develop a romantic attachment to each other. But Asano is one of the men who with whom Jerome is conducting business, and Jerome believes Asano is feigning interest in his mother to achieve business aims. This popular Broadway play weaves both comedic and dramatic elements to question whether individuals can overcome the mutual suspenses and prejudices that war wounds have left upon their souls.
