THE EVENING STAR, Washington, D. C.
The Passing Show
Garlanded 'Gate of Hell'
At Dupont Is Best of Type
By Jay Carmody
The distinction of offering the most original of Washington’s
birthday bargains yesterday could quite easily belong to the Dupont
Theater.
As the holiday's single new film, it presented the prize-sweeping
Japanese “Gate of Hell.” a visually exquisite production and one
fbvlously aimed at the world
jnarket in its break with the
patterns of “Rashomon” and
*Ugetsu.”
j “Gate of Hell." winner of last
Season's Cannes Festival grand
prize, is the most westernized of
the several much - garlanded
movies from Japan. It is based
upon a romantic classic, “Kesa’s
Husband,” and nothing could be
more basic and universal in dra
matic literature than the love
triangle with which it deals.
Its setting is the 12th century
when Japan was Orientally feud
al, primitively elegant, and its
warlords imbued with passions
as upsetting to personal hap
piness as they were to enemy
armies. In its simplest cinema
tic terms, this makes “Gate of
Hell” a kind of eastern western,
which may explain its impact on
the Cannes Festival judges.
** * *
The 12th century story-teller
who started this tale on its way
to 20th century distinction as a
film was an artist with keen
concept of good and evil and a
commercially sound idea of the
dramatic personality.
He introduces audiences first
to the character of Moritoh, the
ultimate villain. Moritoh is a
loyal member of the palace guard,
muscular, fearless and just a bit
too stubbornly stupid for his own
good. In the course of putting
down a palace revolt and helping
the feminine members of the
royal family to escape, his eye
lights upon Kesa and neither
of their lives ever knows another
moment of bliss.
Offered a reward for his
loyalty and valiance, Moritoh
asks for Kesa only to be told that
She is happily married to a high- |
ranking officer, Wataru, and
therefore not available as a mili
tary decoration.
This is the one “no” Moritoh;
cannot take for an answer from |
his liege. He is a man who has |
unleashed an appetite which is
destined to devour him and .the
object of his love in the relent
less drive for satisfaction.
** * *
It is on a high level of Jap- |
anese life that Maritoh pursues j
his blind and violent quest and j
It makes a brilliant series of vis
toal composition in Director Tein- ;
osuke Kinugasa's first venture ;

r j an nrrestingly different back
. j ground.
; ■ For all its attractiveness, how
i! ever, this setting is used as mere
.! background for a screenplay
i whose dominant elements are
i excitement and suspense.
Moritoh, played by Kazuo
, Hasegawa, Is a villain of amaz
i ing energy and a deal of in
genuity ftor so fundamentally
stupid a man. His first notion
for clearing the path to KesA is
j to dispose of her beloved spouse,
i Wataru, in a duel.
This, it turns out, is too crude
an approach, the shame of
whose failure turns Moritoh to
the more promising tactic of
victimizing Kesa herself. He flg
j ures to bring her to dishonor by
threatening the life of Wataru.
a threat which fails for the sim
ple reason that he underesti
mates the desperate resourceful
ness of an honorable wife.
As conflicts of good and evil
go, this one in “Gate bf Hell”
is western in its surface energy,
interestingly oriental In its rev
elation of the difference between
creatures of virtue and those
driven by mere animal hunger.
Within this pattern, Moritoh
could not be more muscularly
played but Actor Hasegawa's
performance is matched move
for move and word for word by
the other principals. These are
j Machiko Kyo, a delicately lovely
! actress who goes quietly but
| unmistakably about teaching the
villain the tragedy of not recog
nizing his moral betters.
An equally quietly revealing
performance is that of Isao
j Yamagata as the ultimately be-
I rest husband.
i These three and others of the
j cast in lesser roles demonstrate
I that western acting style is
! within their artistic range, yet
| without sacraflce of the essential
Japanese flavor of “Gate of Hell.” j
Os the three prize-winning j
Japanese films in the last two j
yekrs, the new one at the Dupont i

ored in its awards.
