Eclipse 1938: 按摩と女

The first movie on the Shimizu was unrestored and barely watchable. The second looked very nice indeed, and was kinda brilliant. This one looks rather dodgy? Perhaps there’s a correlation between whether somebody’s found it worth their time to restore a film and how memorable it is, because it doesn’t really look promising either way.

It’s a comedy based on two blind guys stumbling around a lot?

That looks like the worst massage ever.

OK, this is pretty amusing. But…

The Masseurs and a Woman. Hiroshi Shimizu. 1938.
