Cry for Happy (1961) is an American movie, filmed in Eastmancolor and CinemaScope, directed by George Marshall, and released by Columbia Pictures.


During the Korean War, Andy Cyphers (Glenn Ford), 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.
