Sam Fuller, bitch. This “Collector’s Choice” is a unique DVD set because it has more films in it that aren’t directed by Sam Fuller than are. The five un-Sam movies, on which he has a (shared) writing credit, have never been on DVD before, and only if you’re a real freak for Sam Fuller will you need them like I need them.
Crimson Kimono and Underworld USA are the two Sam Fuller pictures in the mix. You might be able to deal with Underworld USA, with its shades-wearing child-killers, but from the opening scene of a nude stripper getting shot dead on a crowded L.A. street, you won’t be able to handle Crimson Kimono.
You see, in the aftermath of World War II, the ladies got the Yellow Fever, and the Man – and you – can’t deal with it.
