Bijo to Ekitainingen (1958)

Bijo to Ekitainingen (1958, JAP) C-79m. SCOPE ** D: Ishirô Honda. Starring Yumi Shirakawa, Kenji Sahara, Akihiko Hirata, Koreya Senda. Not-bad Japanese companion piece to THE BLOB (1958), about the hysteria that ensues when people in Tokyo disappear, leaving only their clothes behind. It turns out that a mysterious, radioactive liquid is dissolving them. Good, colorful cinematography, interesting effects, although plot does drag a little. Originally ran 87m. Title translates as BEAUTY AND THE LIQUIDMAN. Also known as THE H-MAN.
