    Sayonara h This film is now one of my absolute favorite old movies, right alongside with Gone with the Wind. The film's focus on the taboo's of interracial marriages, while an eye-opening subject in the 60's, the film was not shy showing the audiences that love overcomes all, and when two are in love, all things are possible. Throughout the entire film, I never once felt the romance scenes were "played out" or unusually depicted. This film truthfully allowed me to understand how love doesn't loo...
