And now for something (kinda) different. Turner Classic Movies presented two movies by Masahiro Shinoda, known for tales about outsiders and, much later, Kabuki on film. A just-out-of-prison-for-murder Yakuza member returns to Tokyo, and finds that things have changed, even after three years. A chronic gambler, he spots an "innocent" at game and strikes up a conversation. Things go as fast as the girl's 1964 Renault Floride in the "dark before dawn." Then an ex-Hong Kong thug shows up, and his life becomes a balancing act...
Return with us now to those early days, when Mars was an Edgar Rice Burroughs literary concept and the only way to see The Red Planet was through a telescope. Before satellite photos 1n 1965 revealed the true surface of Mars, it was thought that an explorer could find the requisites (air, water, food) should they seek "My Favorite Martian." I recall seeing a TV broadcast of this movie when WTBS was just getting stated. So, get into your space suit, and fasten your safety harness, Mars awaits!;)
