Dir. Akira Kurosawa (1950).
A protest film, filled with flashes of charm, made just before Rashomon, this rarely shown Kurosawa feature about the evils of yellow journalism, while not a major work, contains fine performance by Toshiro Mifune as a young painter and Takashi Shimura as an inept lawyer.
