[font=Century Gothic]In "The Crimson Kimono", a stripper, Sugar Torch, is shot and killed on Main Street in Los Angeles. Since a witness cannot make a postive identifcation of the killer, the two detectives assigned to the case, Charlie Bancroft(Glenn Corbett) and Joe Kojaku(James Shigeta), have little to go on. The only clues they have are a painting in Sugar's dressing room and the knowledge that she was working on a Japanese themed act for Las Vegas. Kojaku talks to an martial arts acquaintance who was set to be featured in the act while Joe talks to a painter friend, Mac(Anna Lee).[/font]

[font=Century Gothic]"The Crimson Kimono" gets off to a good start and has memorable characters to spare but eventually the mystery takes a back seat to the personal lives of the lead characters. It does help that both halves of the movie dovetail nicely at the end. The movie is far ahead of its time in its depiction of the Asian-American community in general, and the Japanese-American community specifically. [/font]

another good one from Fuller just rewatched and it is the best classic movie i've seen in a while the music fits the subject matter is really racey for its time well done and well handled by fuller a must see essential-oops stealing from those other guys:)

Dois detectives investigam o homicídio de uma stripper num bairro japonês: (C) esta a premissa pulp, supostamente descartável, que Samuel Fuller transforma num s (C)rie-B categórico, com todo o estilo, verve e coolness, que são habituais nos filmes do Mestre. Agrada-me especialmente o confronto de culturas (americana e japonesa) e a visão de um autor que, em 1959, já sabia perfeitamente situar a história num contexto de atrito racial, que dominou mil filmes de acção durante as d (C)cadas de 70, 80 e 90. Venha mais Fuller.

Rather solid and boundary pushing for its day, until it reaches the third act, where it all goes out the window. It's rather disappointing, as Fuller had made the transition from "murder mystery" to "love triangle drama" rather smoothly and effectively, but the resolution to the murder mystery is very sloppy. Especially when the "Mac" character appears out of nowhere for a few shots at he end. The acting is...OK, but Fuller is the real star here, his robust visuals aided by a very stark and no-nonsense cutting style.
