THE BLIND SWORDSMAN'S REVENGE (zatoichi nidan giri) (1965 JAPAN) D: AKIRA INOUE W: MINORU INUZUKA
Shintaro Katsu as the blind Masseur Zatoichi returns to his roots to find his massage instructor has been killed and the daughter (Mikiko Tsubouchi) sold into prostitution. Fairly average entry in the series, but that still means it's of a very high quality. With Norihei Miki, Takeshi Kato, Masami Makino, Saburo Date, Sonosuke Sawamura, Yuusuke Terashima and that little singing girl (Sachiko Kobayashi) was later very famous. Next was ZATOICHI AND THE DOOMED MAN.
