The Teahouse of the August Moon

1956 Rated NR 2hr 3m

In director Daniel Mann's interpretation of John Patrick's Broadway comedy, American Col. Purdy (Paul Ford) is determined to infuse post-World War II Okinawans with Western culture -- and assigns the hapless Capt. Fisby (Glenn Ford) to make it so. Instead, the natives convince pushover Fisby to help them build a geisha teahouse, for which he enlists the help of interpreter Sakima (Marlon Brando). The film earned six Golden Globe nominations.
