When three rival candy companies go to war for
market supremacy, World Caramels enlists a lower-class girl with appallingly bad

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 Masumuras DaieiScope explosion of color, sound and acid
wit ranks with the best satires of Billy Wilder and Frank Tashlin.
