A trip to post-World War II Japan

"Robert Wagner as an American secret agent, Joan Collins is eye candy, Edmond O'Brien as an assassination conspirator and Ken Scott as another Intelligence agent but somewhat dubious. Litte Reiko Oyama is winning as the orphaned girl. It is wonderful to see Japan of 50 years ago - beautiful, intriguing, traditional. I wish more
movies such "A Girl Named Tamiko" were released on DVD sooner instead of later.
We cannot look at American-Japanese relations through 2007 eyes; the circumstances were vastly different.
This movie was set in a Japan after we defeated the Japanese in World War II, when the USA still had a high commissioner helping to govern a country new to western democracy, when there may have been factions willing to undermine stability."
