Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Tomu Uchida (Uchida Tomu?, April 26, 1898 - August 7, 1970), born Tsunejir Uchida on 26 April 1898, was a Japanese film director. The stage name "Tomu" translates to "spit out dreams." Uchida started out at the Taikatsu studio in the early 1920s, but came to prominence at Nikkatsu, adapting literary works with the screenwriter Yasutar Yagi in a realist style. His 1929 film A Living Puppet (Ikeru ningyo) was selected as the fourth best film of the year by the film journal, Kinema Junpo. Many of his 1930s films featured the actor Isamu Kosugi. One such work, Policeman (Keisatsukan), has been called "a tremendously stylish gangster movie about the love-hate relationship between a cop and a criminal, once childhood friends."show more
