One thing I love about being the designated DC staffer to put up Trembles’ review each week is that we just never know what the hell he’s going to come up with next! Case in point: 1958’s Bijo to Ekitainingen aka The H-Man.
We did some digging on the Net and learned from Wikipedia that the film was released by Columbia Pictures in the United States in 1959. A New York Herald Tribune film critic at the time called it, “A good-natured poke at atom-bomb tests… The picture is plainly making a case against the use of nuclear bombs. At the same time, there is a great deal of lively entertainment in the story involving police, dope smugglers, scientists and some very pretty Japanese girls.”
What could be better? You can check it out for yourselves as part of the Icons of Sci-Fi: Toho Collection, which you can order from EvilShop below.
