Irving Berlin composed the title song, and Franz Waxman composed the musical score that serenades us throughout the movie. Some additional notes: 1 Marlon Brando has been criticized for the Southern accent that he mumbles throughout the movie.
It is said that his mumbling cost him the Oscar. She appears totally Japanese. She actually became a popular figure in the United States as a result of this movie and her Oscar. This movie is well worth your time. Marlon Brando Condition see all Condition.

Unlike most s romantic dramas, Sayonara deals squarely with racism and prejudice. Airman Joe Kelly Red Buttons , who is Ace's enlisted crew chief, is about to wed a Japanese woman, Katsumi Miyoshi Umeki , in spite of the disapproval of the United States military establishment , which will not recognize the interracial marriage because it is generally illegal under American law.
The Air Force, including Ace, is against the marriage. Ace and Joe have an argument during which Ace uses a racial slur to describe Katsumi. Ace eventually apologizes, then agrees to be Joe's best man at the wedding. Ace falls in love with a Japanese entertainer, Hana-ogi Miiko Taka , who is a performer for a Takarazuka -like theater company, whom he meets through Katsumi.
When she overhears that Joe's house has been under surveillance by the Army, she believes that Ace is in danger and goes there to warn him, where she realizes he is seeing a local woman. Joe suffers further prejudice at the hands of openly hostile Colonel Crawford Douglass Watson , pulling extra duty and all the less attractive assignments. When Joe and many others who are married to Japanese are targeted for transfer back to the United States , Joe realizes that he will not be able to take Katsumi, who is now pregnant.
Ace goes to General Webster and pleads Joe's case, asking that he be allowed to remain in Japan. When the General refuses on the grounds that he cannot allow an exception, Ace tells him that he will be in the same situation, since he intends to marry Hana-ogi. Eileen and her mother are present for the exchange, and Ace apologizes for hurting her. Eileen realizes Ace never loved her the way he loves Hana-ogi and she leaves to see Nakamura.
Joe and Katsumi's home is boarded up by the military police and Ace is taken into custody by General Webster, where he is confined to quarters. He is told that he will most likely be sent back to the United States and Hana-ogi will be sent to Tokyo. Ace, accompanied by Captain Bailey James Garner , finds Joe and Katsumi secretly returned to their home and committed double suicide rather than be parted. Shortly thereafter, Hana-ogi arrives unnoticed and alone outside Joe and Katsumi's home.
There she opens a rear window and, still unseen, secretly whispers a tearful "sayonara" to Joe, Katsumi, and Ace, although nobody hears or sees her. Hana-ogi leaves undetected through the rear gate.Translation of 'Sayonara Baby' by Miliyah Kato (加藤ミリヤ) from Japanese to English.
