"A song I want to express in my films with a boisterous, even lunatic cry."
GIANTS AND TOYS 95 minutes 1958 dir. Yasuzo Masumura

When three rival candy companies go to war for market supremacy, World Caramels enlists a lower-class girl with appallingly bad teeth to be their new spokesmodel. In a world of industrial spies, hostile takeovers and boardroom hysterics, the animal instincts of this overnight star prove to be the most cutthroat of all.

This razor-sharp, fast-paced attack on post-war corporate society and TV culture plays like a Japanese combination of Dr. Strangelove and Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? More valid today than the day it was made, New Wave master Yasuzo Masumura's DaieiScope explosion of color, sound, and acid wit ranks with the best satires of Billy Wildre and Frank Tashlin.
