Setsuko Hara on TCM – 8/19/21

Setsuko Hara was a great Japanese actress. She appeared in many fine films directed by Yasujiro Ozu. Ozu films were not widely shown in the US until Tokyo Story (1953) was shown in 1972.

Tokyo Story will be shown on 8/21 along with Late Spring, Early Autumn, Late Autumn and Tokyo Twilight. Tokyo Twilight is relatively unknown and is one of his best that I have seen. It’s available as part of this DVD set. Many of his films are part of the Criterion Collection.
