Cry for Happy is a 1961 colour movie directed by George Marshall.


During the Korean War, a Navy photographer and his three-man team occupy a Tokyo geisha house, though it is off-limits and four girls are living there. At first, the men misunderstand the geishas' occupation; later, romance develops. Eventually the Navy discovers the situation, and the sailors and the geishas decide to quickly convert the geisha house into a temporary orphanage. Surprisingly, the orphanage is successful.
