ACF 499: Scar Yosaburo at Japan Society NY

© Kadokawa Pictures, Inc.

Scar Yosaburo / Kirare Yosaburo
Directed by Daisuke Ito
With Raizo Ichikawa, Manami Fuji, and Keiko Awaji
Japan, 1960, color, 94 min.

Scar Yosaburo will be shown at Japan Society on Saturday, March 20th, 2010 at 7:00 PM. The screening is part of the Monthly Classic Series The Double Edged Sword: The Chambara Films of Shintato Katsu & Raizo Ichikawa. No screener was available and I have other plans for that evening, so I'll just pass on this information:

In Scar Yosaburo, a band of yakuza ruffians mutilate the face of an actor after he is caught with the gang boss’s mistress. A misty, moonlit tale from the Kabuki repertoire and a stirring classic of the most artful category of samurai films, zankoku jidai-geki ("cruel historicals").
