Coming Up on TV: Sam Fuller’s The Crimson Kimono

The Crimson Kimono: a rare mixed-race encounter for 1959

The Crimson Kimono (1959) is another sensationalistic and deliciously exploitative cop noir from the great Sam Fuller.  As usual, Fuller has the guts to break ground, this time with a Japanese-American leading man (James Shigeta), an inter-racial romance and a stripper victim.  Plays on TCM November 13.
