  2. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film The Love of Sumako the Actress

    A fascinating film - a real departure in many ways for both its director and star - based on actual characters who, round the turn of the century, brought Western theater to the Japanese stage. Doubtless it pleased the Occupation authorities, yet there's not a totally uncritical view of the effect of newfangled ideas on the Japanese character. And, as one expects from the maestro, it's beautiful as can be.
