View all Cry for Happy reviews
U.S. Navy combat cameraman Andy Cyphers (Ford) & his team – Murray Prince (O’Connor), George Washing Suzuki and Lank, billet themselves in an “off-limits’ Kyoto, Japan, heisha house while on leave. Cyphers quickly becomes attracted to the beautiful Chiyoko, while Murray falls in love with the pixie-like Harue.

What she gets sacked with is another smiling, placid figure in a nothing role that we know will eventually wind up with one of the four American GIs crashing in the geisha house. This doesn’t stop the GIs from basically inferring that the geishas are prostitutes and trying treating them as such. A series of misunderstanding and outright lies escalate to a zany conclusion, there's a happily-ever-after, and the geisha becomes an orphanag” read more
