The Teahouse of the August Moon

Starring: Marlon Brando; Director: Daniel Mann

As a post-WWII Okinawan interpreter in The Teahouse of the August Moon, a bewigged Marlon Brando helps U.S. forces (like Glenn Ford’s clueless officer) ”Americanize” his island. His character isn’t as offensive as Mickey Rooney’s Mr. Yunioshi in Breakfast at Tiffany’s…but it comes close.
