I was a Japanese prisoner: Screamin' Jay Hawkins in a YouTube clip


In the YouTube clip (not sure what show or doc this clip is from, if anyone knows, let me know, i wanna buy it or rent it) Screamin' Jay Hawkins (pictured - from Mystery Train. a song of his, i think the title is I Put A Spell On You, was introduced to a whole new audience through Jarmusch's Stranger Than Paradise, and of course Hawkins acted in Mystery Train) talks about being a POW in WWII, being tortured by the Japanese (is this a true story or a Tom Waits like act/made up story?). Also in the clip: Jarmusch talking about how Hawkins had a hard time, at first, working with the Japanese actors in Mystery Train. Very interesting clip. Check it out here.
