Everyone gives Mickey Rooney a bad rap for his incredibly racist portrayal of Mr. Yunioshi, but I found Marlon Brando's Sakini even more cringe-worthy, maybe because he narrated the whole damn film. The only redeeming quality this film has is the historically accurate Okinawan song and dance numbers.
