The Teahouse of the August Moon

A whimsical, poignant adaptation of the hit Broadway play about an American G.I.'s experiences in Okinawa in 1944. Glenn Ford is given the task of 'democratising' the locals and decides a lady's social club and a schoolhouse are the way to go. However the locals are more interested in a teahouse with pretty geishas. Marlon Brando plays the slick native interpreter with a way of getting what he wants and Paul Ford, Eddie Albert and Machiko Kyo offer memorable supporting turns.
