(Samuel Fuller, 1959)

Standard Edition Blu-ray

Samuel Fuller re-worked and reinvented popular film genres as lenses through which to examine American history, ideals, and topical events. His detective thriller The Crimson Kimono, with its frank and unsentimental interracial romance twist, attacked the stubborn prejudice, ignorance and bigotry that Fuller saw lurking beneath the surface of the American nation.
