Here's to the Young Lady
Here's to the Young Lady (aka as Let's Toast the Young Lady) is a 1949 Japanese film directed by Keisuke Kinoshita and starring Setsuko Hara. It's a sweet love story about the trials and tribulations of courtship as a rich but uncultured businessman is matched with a cultured woman whose formerly rich family has fallen on hard times. I enjoyed this movie, even with all the commercials Hulu stuck in there. It's a charming film.
I can't find any video at all from this film, not the shortest clip, which is a real shame. There are stills here at the Google image search, which is where I found the picture at the top of this post. You can watch it -with a paid subscription- at Hulu.
Reviews are oddly scarce, but don't let that stop you from seeking out this delightful movie. It's as approachable as anything you'll find, and it's worth a spot in your viewing queue.
