My Geisha

This 1962 feature was marketed as a comedy and while it does contain comedic elements it is in fact more of a drama than anything else. It's considered a classic but one many have not seen so I don't wish to spoil the plot for those who haven't. What is great is Shirley MacLaine who not only gives a superb performance here but looks hotter than hell doing it. These days we tend to think of her a new age past life experience advocate and we often forget what a fine actress she was not to mention there were damn good reasons why Frank and the rest of the rat packers kept her around. A fine viewing experience with some truly heart warming moments and well worth keeping an eye out for.
