A Colt Is My Passport (拳銃は俺のパスポート Koruto wa Ore no Pasupōto?) is a 1967 Japanese yakuza film directed by Takashi Nomura for the Nikkatsu Corporation.


It stars Joe Shishido as a hitman who, along with his sidekick played by Jerry Fujio, is hired by the yakuza to eliminate a rival gang's boss. The two are captured after the job, escape and are waylaid once again resulting in a climatic battle. The film was among Shishido's first starring roles, cementing him as a hardboiled action hero, and remains a personal favourite of the 170 films he made at Nikkatsu.[1]
