from Kinema Junpo, 1939.3.1

“There is a movie director who claims to be a human being and knowledgeable about astronomy and what not … he spends a lot of time and efforts on anything other than cinema, but look at him. He just looks like nothing but a movie director. Does he look like a mechanical engineer or a natural scientist?”

The photo above is Kajiro Yamamoto, who directed “Composition Class (1938)” and “Horse (1941)“, strolling in the Toho studio in 1939.
