Archie (Archer MacDonald) and Rocky (William Andrews), two G.I.s on shoreleave in Japan, somehow accidently get hold of a container of highly explosive pills when trading their uniforms for everyday clothes - and they don't even know about it. However, everyone else does know about it, including Tetsu Nakano (Tetsu Nakamura)  - the owner of a geisha house who really works for the main baddie of the film the Professor (Tatsuo Saito), who has actually invented the explosive pills -, Peggy (Martha Hyer) - a stewardess who really is an American agent and who has fallen for Rocky - and Michiko (Michiyo Naori) - a geisha who is really an American agent as well and who has fallen for Archie.

There is much to and fro with the Professor's men making half-hearted attempts to get the pills back and with Zoro (Dekao Yoko), a mischievous hypnotist who works for Peggy, but in the end, the baddies get their just desserts and our two G.I.s get sent home to the USA with Peggy and Michiko.

 

This film is interesting inasmuch as it was shot in Japan during the time of the American occupation and it gives some accurate insight into Japanese culture ... which is where the virtues of this film come to an end. Actually, Geisha Girl is an ill-oncieved blend of travelogue, espionage story and (unfunny) slapstick comedy that seems to be altering between these genres quite aimlessly. A lack of proper production values or decent comic actors further keep this film from making an impact.

A rather obscure film that should remain just that - obscure.
