FIGHT, ZATOICHI, FIGHT (zatoichi kessho-tabi) (1964 JAPAN) D: KENJI MISUMI W: SEIJI HOSHIKAWA P: IKURO KUBOKAWA
One of the best entries in this consistently excellent series about a blind masseur skilled at the use of his cane sword. Zatoichi (series regular Shintaro Katsu, who's excellent) feels responsible after some hired assassins accidentally kill a woman instead of him so transports her baby cross-country to the father. Katsu is particularly good this time, showing genuine tenderness and love for the baby, but he can still slice-up a whole lot of baddies midway through changing a nappy! With Hizuro Tachikawa, Nobuo Kaneko, Yoshi Kato, Tatsuya Ishiguro, Saburo Date, Shousaku Sugiyama and Shouzo Nanbu. ADVENTURES OF A BLIND MAN was next.
