1957 | Nominee: Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Motion Pictures
1957 | Nominee: Best Written American Comedy (Screen)
This was a pretty good comedy with Brando apparently being so convincing as Japanese that movie-goers at the time wanted refunds claiming he never appeared in the film. Glenn Ford is as usual very solid
Biting commentary from a comedy that still has juice. No, I'm not sure why Brando is here but it is quite witty and is shot well.
Brando gives it his all being uncomfortably racist.
Sakini it's a great performance
