Scandal (Shubun)

Trailer (QuickTime Video) for Scandal (Shubun, 1950, directed by Akira Kurosawa, Shochiku Company). "...On holiday in the snow-covered mountains, young painter Ichiro Aoye (Toshiro Mifune) has a chance meeting with the popular singer Miyako Saijo (Shirley Yamaguchi). After giving her a ride back to the hotel where they are both staying, Ichiro is photographed with Miyako by paparazzi. A magazine creates an exposé of their ‘secret romance’ based around this photograph, and the brooding Ichiro ignites a bitter and dirty libel case in order to restore their honour."
