Blood On the Sun is based on a fictional history behind the Tanaka Memorial document, an alleged Japanese strategic planning document from 1927 in which Prime Minister Baron Tanaka Giichi laid out for Emperor Hirohito a strategy to take over the world. The authenticity of the document was long accepted and it is still quoted in some Chinese textbooks, but there is a consensus among most scholars that it was a carefully-crafted anti-Japanese hoax. Blood on the Sun was the second movie Cagney's company produced, and the first war film. Insisting on doing his own stunts, Cagney required judo training from expert Ken Kuniyuki and Jack Halloran, a former policeman. The Cagneys had hoped that an action film would especially appeal to audiences, but it did poorly at the box office. Despite this, the film won the 1945 Academy Award for Best Art Direction for a Black & White film (Wiard Ihnen, A. Roland Fields).
