episode 254: Konto 55: Grand Outer Space Adventure (1969)

Byrd, Matt and Tom discuss Jun Fukuda's obscure sci-fi comedy, Konto 55: Grand Outer Space Adventure.  The film stars the comedy duo Konto 55, as they and their mutual love interest are abducted by aliens in order to study earthlings' knack for violence.  An alien Bluebeard, Marilyn Monroe, Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, Yang Gufei, and Ono no Komachi also appear.  It is as insane as it sounds.  So how does this daffy obscurity fare?  Listen and find out!
