Crop And Save
A Majority of One (1961)
Sweet and funny with some intrigue ( although slight)
Very nice and cute, stereotypical portrayals and odd casting, but enjoyable. Alex Guinness as a Japanese businessman is quite a stretch and his fake Japanese syntax is nearly comical, but look past that and enjoy the movie for what it is. Rosalind Russell is priceless as an anti-Japanese American woman who falls for a Japanese man. She seems to change for the Catholic mother to the Yiddish Mams from scene to scene. Her family loves her but thinks she is stupid and clueless, but she sets them all straight. It is a true portrayal of the times. I remember many family members of that generation speaking exactly the same way. Her daughter and son-in-law had a lot to learn about the way different cultures connect, even though they were supposedly trained to live within the culture to which they were assigned.
