ZATOICHI`S CANE SWORD (the blind swordsman`s cane sword; zatoichi tekka tabi) (1967 JAPAN) D: KIMIYOSHI YASUDA W: RYOZO KASAHARA P: IKUO KUBODEKA
Masseur Ichi (Shintaro Katsu) attempts to give up the sword and work full-time as a masseur for an inn, but more small town corruption forces his hand back to righteous killing. What can i say? Just another top-notch entry in this unmissable series. With Yumiko Fujita, Makoto Fujita, Kyoko Suizenji, Eijiro Tono, Fujio Suga, Tatsuo Endo, Masumi Harukawa, Ryouji Kita, Saburo Date (boy was this man busy!), Kazunari Doi, Goro Onoe, Yuusaku Terashima, Hajime Kimura, Yukio Horikita and Kimiko Tachibana. ZATOICHI THE OUTLAW was next.
