"A director who had a big impact on Japanese and Hong Kong pop cinema... Inoue's mix of music, action, and hot young talent became a template for a new genre, called Nikkatsu Action."
— Variety

A prolific and versatile filmmaker who worked across a wide range of genres throughout his long career, Umetsugu Inoue (1923-2010) made his mark at Nikkatsu Studios in the 1950s with a series of highly entertaining, genre-blending musical films that captured the explosive energy of Japan's jazz fueled youth culture.

For this weekend film series, Japan Society is proud to present three of Nikkatsu's newly-subtitled, full-color Inoue classics starring heartthrob (and so-called "Japanese Elvis Presley") Yujiro Ishihara, the biggest male singing film star in postwar Japan.

Each film will be screened twice, once each day of the weekend film series:

- The Winner
- The Stormy Man
- The Eagle and the Hawk

Special Offer: Purchase all 3 Umetsugu Inoue films in the same transaction and receive $2 off each ticket!
