THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 1951 THE REGISTER NEWS — MT VERNON, ILLINOIS Japanese Star^^ Reports Film Kissing Increases By BOB TIIOl^IAS HOLLYWOOD (AP) — Here's something else the American occupation has brought to Japan: More kissing on the screen. This report comes from Shirley Yamaguchi, one of Japan's top movie stars. She came hero some months ago on a highly-publicized m'ssion to learn how to kiss in films. It seems that there was no kissing in Japanese films prior to the occupation. "But the G.I.'s taught us how," he declared. "Now we are putting kisses into our movies. It has not been easy for us, because we traditionally do not show our emotions. "That is why foreigners think that our films arc dull. The actors do very little but talk. You see, even when a Jajjanese is very angry or very sad, he never shows it. And he would never think of kissing in public." * » • DESPITE 1 IIE AMERICAN INFLUENCE, kissing is still not done in public, she said.^ But there has been more of it in the films, particularly since her research on the sub.iect in Hollywood. "Can you think of a better reason for a trip," she grinned, ducking behind a fan she waggled in her hand. She added that the technical asi^ects of camera angles on kiss scones had the Japanese baffled, but they have overcome the problems. The Japanese public seems to approve the addition of kissing sequences, she said. Miss Yamaguchi is here to appear in "East Is East," in which she plays a Japanese girl who marries a G.I. • « * SOMETIMES I WONDER . . . why a studio will toss a big preview for a picture like "The Hollywood Story" (a good one, too) and then release it on the lower half of a double bill ... why a studio assigns Gregory Peck to another western when he needs a change of pace . . . I also wonder . . . why some studio doesn't hire Mack Sennett now that the public is clamoring for slapstick comedy . . . why MGM doesn't co-star Ethel and Lionel Barrymore in a picture and let each try to steal it . . . Why a studio doesn't lure Deanna Durbin back to films, since the singing cycle is on again . . why first-run theaters will scare away more customers by trying to foist two B pictures on a double bill . . . can't someone tell me why?
