It's a crying shame we couldn't have had Duke Kahanamoku's take on that Kalita, with the ghost of his corporal's stripes still on his sleeve.
I really think that whatever survives of that character is almost entirely to Kahanamoku's credit as an actor. He had some help from the script, but more hindrance.
And we should have had the film that character belonged in, with the war-trauma and the real relationship in, and the corrosive racism out.
