Kaizawa interview 13 June 2000:
Here is a photo of us visiting Shôchiku’s Ofuna studios, probably March or April, 1946. It was just a trip for pleasure, not business (from L to R): Muramatsu, the Tôhô liaison, who loved American films and everything American; Earle; Palestin; a Shôchiku female staff and guide; Kaizawa; Nakata. Even when we were civilians we often wore a uniform with a special patch to indicate we were civilians.
