September 30th, 2014: What’s Up Tiger Lily?

Cast and Crew:  Louise Lasser (Co-Writer/Voice Actor); Akiko Wakabayashi, Mie Hama, Kumi Mizuno

What It’s About: Secret agent Phil Moscowitz (Tatsuya Mihashi) is in pursuit of a very important egg salad recipe, a quest that will bring him in contact with danger, girls, and cut aways to Woody Allen and The Lovin’ Spoonful.

Why Watch it Today?: Today is International Translator Day, and What’s Up Tiger Lily? is the grandfather of all “mistranslated” comedies, an otherwise unremarkable Japanese spy film turned into a very silly comedy when Woody Allen dubbed in new, ridiculous dialogue.
