Early Masumura is contemporary with late Douglas Sirk -- both harnessed garish fifties modernism for a scathing, full-color portrait of ambition in the new middle class. In Blue Sky Maiden, Ayako Wakao plays good-natured Yuko, the illegitimate daughter of a well-off executive, raised in the country by relatives. Journeying to Tokyo she finds Father's Western-style house to be a nest of vipers straight out of There's Always Tomorrow, replete with Terrible Children, a housekeeper who sees all, and a dog named Cal with his own doghouse. But Yuko meets it all with aplomb; she's interested in one thing only, finding her real, cast off mother. While digging Blue Sky Maiden's echt-fifties Japan (look for the Sun Tribe-following big brother, and the nightclub singer's hand-print frock), we experience what James Quandt meant when he said, "Even at its most berserk and genre-bound, Masumura's cinema is semiotically rich and sophisticated." .

The Blue Sky Maiden
Yuko is sent to the coastal regions to be raised away from the rest of her sophisticated family where she finds out from her ill grandmother that she is not who she thought she was.

Are the songs cornier than a hot summer day in Kansas? You know it. But this is what makes it a family favorite. I was overjoyed when I was able to find it at my local video store. I watch it at least once a month with my mom and we constantly sing the songs. Recently I took a trip to Disneyland with my husband and was ecstatic when I heard Beautiful Beulah playing near Snow White's wishing well. The songs are terribly cheesy, but so catchy. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys the classics -- and doesn't mind the sound of Hayley Mills singing!
