Shishido Joe, a pistol, and a funky hat.

A few days ago I watched A Colt is My Passport on the recent DVD release in the Nikkatsu Noir box set.
Left me hungry for more movies with Shishido Joe.

He stole that hat from Mr. Peppermint!

After that picture was taken, Ace Jo went on a vaudeville rampage and put his fist through that hat.
IMO, "Youth of the Beat" is better than "Colt/Passport". But that's just me. I have "Detective Bureau 2-3: Go to Hell Bastards" coming soon. The title sells itself. Heard nothing great about the film though.

There's a fine impromptu song and dance number in Detective Bureau 2-3: Go to Hell Bastards. I forget if Joe wears a jaunty hat or not.
Two fun facts about Mr. Peppermint: he was the first person to report the Kennedy assassination and he's the father of Gibby Haynes from the Butthole Surfers.
