Birth of historical drama

The term "historical drama" was originally usedActivity photoIt is a word that was born from, and is a genre that has walked along with the history of movies.And in the early days when movies were called activity photography, there was no genre strictly called historical drama.

Old drama movie

In 1899 (Meiji 32), some films remain as the oldest existing movie in Japan, in which "Momijigari", which shot the performances of Kabuki's XNUMXth generation Ichikawa Danjuro and XNUMXth generation Onoe Kikugoro, was shot. However, this is not for the purpose of movie entertainment, but is only recorded.[7][Annotation 6]..And the first historical drama film shot for the purpose of movie entertainment was Shozo Makino (later) in 1908 (Meiji 41).Makino Shozo) Produced "Honnoji Battle] Is the starting point.However, this first historical drama was called an old drama at that time.[8].

From the Meiji era to the middle of the Taisho era, all the period objects were old plays.There were many subjects from storytelling and Kabuki, and it is said that there were many accompaniment of music and hayashi by voice benshi and Japanese musical instruments, strongly retaining the remnants of the stage such as character modeling, costumes, makeup, acting, standing around, and onnagata.[9].

Name before historical drama movie

Around the beginning of the 1920s, a movement to innovate Japanese films called "movie drama" took place, emphasizing scenarios in Europe and the United States, utilizing film techniques and devising expressions, using subtitles independent of benshi, and actresses. There was a movement to seek newness in the content of the entire movie, from shooting to editing, which is different from the activity photography up to this time, such as recruitment.Inspired by that, the words "old drama film adaptation", "old drama movie remodeling theory", and "movie dramatic old drama" were used in the commentary on activity photographs.[10].

"Honnoji Battle』Since then, to list the names used in the promotion along with the title of the movie, old drama, innovative old school movie, pure movie drama, new movie drama, old school pure movie drama, new period drama and new period movie, period drama and period movie Becomes[11]..Innovative old-fashioned movies are old-fashioned, but they have natural depictions that make use of location shooting, fine cuts, but adopted female figures.The film drama was closer to the Western-style film style, with an emphasis on screenplay and filming techniques, subtitles, and actresses.The pure movie drama and the new movie drama are the same, and although Shozo Makino's "Jitsuroku Chushinzo" was called a new movie drama, the adoption of the female form remained.It was a pure film movement that adopted the actress, although it brought the old drama closer to the movie drama.And it was called the new period drama and the new period movie that further promoted the movie drama of the old drama, and with a new interpretation and a new perspective, the acting also introduced a new drama system and adopted an actress.[12].

In response to the playfulness of old drama movies, the absurd unreality, and the unnaturalness of the absence of actresses, a new historical drama called "new historical drama" was eventually created.[13].

The first historical film

The first movie called historical drama was "Honnoji Battle"Shimizu no Jirocho" produced at Matsutake Kamata Photo Studio in 14 (Taisho 1922), 11 years after[Annotation 7]It is said that this movie was the beginning of a movie called "historical drama" because it was named "new historical drama" in the advertising phrase of.[Annotation 8].. The directorNomura Yoshitei(Yoshitaro NomuraThe director's father) wrote the script for this movieDaisuke ItoPromotes a mage movie that was previously called "old drama"New historical dramaI named it and released it.Therefore, "the name historical drama is named after the movie produced at Shochiku Kamata Studio."[14], Is said to be.

However, Kenji Iwamoto called "new period drama" and "new period movie" by Kinema Matsutake from 1922 (Taisho 11) to 1923 (Taisho 12) in his book "The Birth of" Period Film "". It is said that the Makino movies of the period were mixed as they were called "historical drama" and "historical movie".And it was simplified and "historical drama" became established.[15].

Kabuki period

kabukiIn the field of ", the program dealing with the past era than the Edo period"Period(The subject is the upper society such as samurai, aristocrats, and monks), and the modern drama of the Edo period was called "caretaker".[16]. AndTsuruya north and southThese "life care" are from the Edo period, which depicts the lives of ordinary people, but since it was impossible to focus on the upper society such as samurai in the Edo period, the samurai go back to the past. He drew aristocrats and monks and projected the reality of the present generation.In addition, what was based on the appearance of ordinary people in the past was also called "time care".Originally, the name "Jidaimono" started from Ningyo Joruri and moved to Kabuki, where the "era" was from the 7th century to the 15th century, such as the Nara, Heian, Kamakura, and Muromachi periods before the Edo period.[17]..And, in fact, the social situation and public opinion of the Edo period are strongly reflected, and the figure modeling is also contemporary, so even today, the historical drama is largely the inside out of the modern drama.[18].

Old school drama in theater

Japanese theater after the Meiji Restoration began in 1888 (Meiji 21).Liberal partySorcererSudō SadanoriRagaOsakaFounded inOtojiro KawakamiIn order to differentiate Kabuki from Kabuki by Japanese journalism in the latter half of the 1890s (Meiji 30's), Kabuki was referred to as "Old School" and Kabuki was referred to as "Old School".New school'[19]In 1906 (Meiji 39)Tsuyouchi-Shimamura HogetsuThe Literary Society of Japan, in 1909 (Meiji 42)Kaoru Oyamauchi-Second generation Ichikawa SajiLanoFree theaterKabuki (old school), a play under the influence of modern European dramaNew schoolTo differentiate fromNew playI called myself[20].

New national drama and sword play

AndTsuyouchiWas a student of ShingekiShojiro SawadaIn 1917 (Taisho 6), the theater company "New national drama'[21]"Swordplay" introduced from Kabuki[5]Developed and gained popularity with the aim of becoming a popular play that is neither old nor new nor new.[Annotation 9]..The main performance of the new national drama, "Moon-shaped half flat"When"National Tadaharu』Was popular and made into a movie.

In this way, the current dichotomy between "historical drama" and "modern drama" originates from the "historical drama" and "caretaker" of the Edo period, and along with the development of drama in the Meiji era, "old drama" and "new drama". In the Taisho era, it was called "historical drama" or "modern drama" from activity photographs, and this genre deals with "the era before the Meiji Restoration".However, this term "historical drama" originated in movies and is not used in Kabuki, which was influenced by many in the first place.The terms play and sword fight are also used in the world of new national drama and popular drama, and the history of "historical drama" is mainly in movies and television.

Historical drama of activity photography

The first historical drama was Shozo Makino (Meiji 1908) in 41 (Meiji XNUMX) as mentioned above.Makino Shozo) Taken in KyotoYokota ShokaiAt that time, it was called "old drama"Honnoji Battle].At that time, Einosuke Yokota, who established Yokota Shokai[Annotation 10]Asked the theater people for their cooperation and asked Shozo Makino, who runs a playhouse called Senbonza in Kyoto Nishijin, to cooperate with him, and Makino always performed on the stage of Senbonza in the precincts of Shinyodo. The activity photo made by making the "Mori Ranmaru Battlefield" of the madness "Honnoji Battle" played by Senbonza Theater performed outdoors and shooting it in one scene and one cut is "Honnoji Battle"Met[22]..Since then, Shozo Makino has made about six movies including "Honnoji Battle", but the box office record was not good, and soon he began to think about withdrawing from the movie, but the following year 6 (Meiji 1909) Was sitting in the Senbonza theaterMatsunosuke OnoeThe movie starring the movie became popular, and since then Shozo Makino and Matsunosuke Onoe have become the mainstream of historical drama movies from the end of the Meiji era to the end of the Taisho era.[23].

Mud play

In this way, the historical drama began with the imitation of Kabuki.[24]..The activity photographs of this era did not have the technique of zooming, and the screening form was to show a film of Kabuki's performance play, which was called an old school / old drama, taken outdoors as it was in a hut. The Kabuki actor despised the actor in the activity film as a "mud play" as "the people who play on the soil."[25]..However, it is true that historical drama began with imitation of Kabuki, but Kabuki here is not only "Dai Kabuki", but also plays of traveling troupes and plays performed in small huts until the Meiji era. It was all Kabuki[26]..Of a movie criticTadao Sato"It was mainly second-class Kabuki people who started making historical drama in Kyoto," he said.[27].

Appearance of historical drama star

The first star of a historical movie wasMatsunosuke OnoeIs. In 1909 (Meiji 42)Makino ShozoIn collaboration with "Goban Tadanobu Genji Foundation"[Annotation 11]Made his movie debut in 1926 (Taisho 15), "The Crescent Moon"[Annotation 12]He has appeared in 17 historical films in 1003 years. Nicknamed "Matsu-chan, the centerpiece", he has Kabuki, storytelling, and Tachikawa Bunko.[Annotation 13]He played the hero of Nikkatsu repeatedly and played an active part as a signboard star of Nikkatsu.EspeciallySpecial effects"Ninjutsu movie" by trick shooting, which is the pioneer of the movie, is the XNUMXth movie, which is based on Kabuki and is "a ridiculous thing for children".[28]However, after making a mark in the history of historical drama for 17 years, Matsunosuke Onoe made a great contribution to spreading the film to the general public.[29]..However, at the end of the Taisho era, Matsunosuke's sword fight[Annotation 14]I got tired of it, and the audience began to seek a sword fight that was faster, more realistic, and had a fierce tone.[30]..Also, apart from this, at about the same timeSawamura Shirogoro Has gained popularity in ninjutsu films directed by Jiro Yoshino and has appeared in more than 200 films.

Historical drama of the Taisho era

Until then in 1912 (Taisho XNUMXst year)Yokota Shokai,Fukuhodo,M. Pathe Shokai,Yoshizawa Shokai"Nikkatsu Photo Co., Ltd."Nikkatsu) Was born.It was the first full-scale movie company in Japan.Nikkatsu set up studios in Tokyo Mukojima and Kyoto Nijo Castle, and Mukojima decided to produce a new school and an old drama in Kyoto Nijo.[31]..And Shozo Makino and Matsunosuke Onoe belonged to Nikkatsu.Apart from this, in 1914 (Taisho 3), "Natural Color Activity Photo Co., Ltd." (Tenkatsu) Was established and Jiro Yoshino and Sawamura Shirogoro belonged to it.

And it was under the influence of Kabuki, which was an old school until around 1920 (Taisho 9), and the role of women isFemale formWas playing and later became a historical drama directorKinugasa SadanosukeWas a female figure of Nikkatsu Mukojima Studio at this time[Annotation 15].

On the other handKiyoshi YamazakiIn 1919 (Taisho 8)New playThe modern drama "The Glow of Life" and "The Glow of Life"Maiden of MiyamaThe following year, 1920 (Taisho 9), Shochiku, who had only worked on Kabuki entertainment until then, announcedShochiku KinemaKaoru Osanai, a new drama, started the same yearShochiku KinemaWhen he was invited to take an activity photo, Shochiku did not use a female onnagata from the beginning and appointed an actress to the movie.From among themYoshiko Kawada,Sakuko Yanagi,Toshiko IizukaBecame the stars of the Shochiku period drama[Annotation 16].

Around this time, Shochiku embarked on a movie business because it had more customers at the Osaka Dotonbori Asahiza, which Shochiku lent to Nikkatsu at the time, than the theater it owned, and it was advocated that Takejiro Shirai should embark on a movie. Takejiro Otani sent his youngest brother Shintaro to the United States to investigate the American movie business before entering the market, but at that time Takejiro Otani said, "Japanese movie actors are a group of deceased people who are not used on the first-class stage. "We cannot compete with the world movie world as it is," he said, with a view to "making something that is not embarrassing to the world and exporting movies."For that purpose, I decided not to use Onnagata from the beginning.[32][Annotation 17]..As for the old drama, Nikkatsu's Matsunosuke Onoe was trying to establish a realistic sword fight by dedicating the new national drama to the Kabuki sword fight.[33].

Until around 1922 (Taisho 11)NikkatsuWas appointed as a female actor in the modern drama due to the influence of the Shinpa, but at the end of the year, more than 10 new actors with female actorsInternational live action(National activity)[Annotation 18]Since he was transferred to, he stopped using the female onnagata and appointed an actress, and started producing a new dramatic contemporary drama.At that time, the name in Nikkatsu was "Nikkatsu Old Drama Club" for historical drama and "Nikkatsu New Drama Club" for contemporary drama.At that time, even in Tokyo, SugamoInternational live actionHistorical drama films were actively produced in (Kokukatsu), etc., but the development of new plays and their introduction into movies were led by Tokyo, and eventually Kokukatsu went bankrupt and human resources flowed out to Kyoto. It became the origin of the segregation between "Kyoto of historical drama" and "Tokyo of contemporary drama".In addition, Makino Shozo used a female onnagata in the movie of Matsunosuke Onoe and did not use an actress, but Nikkatsu starred Matsunosuke Onoe in 1924 (Taisho 13).Passing guard and samuraiI'm using an actress for the first time[Annotation 19].

In 1923 (Taisho 12), Nikkatsu Mukojima Studio also started hiring actresses, and set up a section called "Part XNUMX" to make a movie with actresses.The modern drama of the year "Before the AsahiIs the first work, and later a big star of the Nikkatsu historical dramaYoneko SakaiIs produced.In September of the same year, TokyoGreat Kanto EarthquakeAttacked, and the Nikkatsu Mukojima studio was closed.Actresses and staff moved to Nikkatsu Kyoto, and since then Kyoto has become the home of historical films.[Annotation 20].

Makino historical drama

Shozo Makino became independent from Nikkatsu in 1921 (Taisho 10).Makino Educational Film FactoryWas established.This was also the fact that Shozo Makino separated from Matsunosuke Onoe and the old drama.[Annotation 21]..At that time, Matsunosuke Onoe became a popular actor in ninjutsu movies, but on the other hand, he was criticized for having an adverse effect on young people, and while it is said that he aimed to criticize it as an educational movie, it is simple. It is said that he was looking for a way out of the Matsunosuke movie, which was a "childish swashbuckler movie" due to poetic justice.[34]..And in 1922 (Taisho 11), "Memoir Tadaomizo』Produced and made a movie with a novel movement at that time using a realistic sword fight that was created by the new national drama.Watch this movieRokuhei Susukita[Annotation 22]Joined under Makino, and eventually in 1925 (Taisho 14)Rokuhei SusukitaIs the script,Buntaro FutagawaDirected byBando TsuzumasaburoWas produced with the lead role of "Oro Blood"Met.The scene where the main character in the last is surrounded by a large number of captures and becomes a big swashbuckler scene is powerful, and the fierce turn of Hanzuma shows a realistic sword fight that is completely different from the elegance of Kabuki style until then. It breathed new life into historical films.Since then he has become a major star in swashbuckler movies.The sword fight that was developed in the new national drama was incorporated into the sword fight of the movie, and what was formerly called the old drama became a new genre called the historical drama.[35].

Introducing the Chamber Raster

Around this time, Shozo Makino was in 1924 (Taisho 13).Toa KinemaIn 1925 (Taisho 14), the following yearUnion Film Artists AssociationWas established, and in June of the same yearMakino ProductionWas established.Makino hereBando Tsuzumasaburo,Utaemon Ichikawa,Chiezo Kataoka,Hirotoro Arashi,Ryunosuke TsukigataCreated these stars.They were "Chamber Stars" who brought a showcase of "Swashbuckler" to historical drama, and since then "Chamber Movie" has become the mainstream of historical drama.After Makino leftNikkatsuHe was also a member of Kaoru Osanai, a new drama.Daisuke ItoI came to Nikkatsu from the director and the second new national dramaTojiro OkouchiA combination starring has appeared, and with this combination, "Bakumatsu Kenshi Nagato" and "Chuji Journey Diary''Shirou''New edition Ooka Masanori』And produced masterpieces one after another, and"Tange Sazen』The series started and became a hit[36]. thisDaisuke ItoThe director laterUtaemon IchikawaStarring "One-kill multi-life sword],Ryunosuke TsukigataStarring "Zanjin Zanba Sword] Is being produced.It was a "rebellious hero" movie that was different from the "Matsunosuke movie"[37].

Matsunosuke continued to make films even though he was done, but Junichiro Tanaka wrote in his book "History of Japanese Film Development" that "while other films were dramatic and had few movements, they entrusted everything to the development of content by Kashiro. Based on Matsunosuke's own nimble movements and the production policy of Shozo Makino, which he grasped as one of the essences of the movie, he said, "I didn't feel bored and had movements and changes that satisfied my eyesight." It was more suitable for the cinematic nature than the movie. "[39].

Prewar historical drama

In 1927 (Showa 2), Shochiku became Chojiro Hayashi (Kazuo Hasegawa) As a historical drama star,Female formThe beauty of her native Hayashi captivates women all over Japan[Annotation 23]..The appearance of Chojiro Hayashi became an epoch for women in historical films, while the stars other than him were overwhelmingly male fans.

Chiezo Pro

On the other hand, Chiezou Kataoka became independent from Makino Production.Chiezo ProWas established, but at that timeDaisuke ItoI consulted with the director and received advice to the effect that "I will provide two young people who are at my place, so I should make a different historical drama."What are the two young peopleItami Mansaku(Itami XIIIFather) andHiroshi InagakiMet.Eventually, Mansaku Itami became a professional Chiezou Kataoka.Kokushi Musou"[Annotation 24]"Sengoku Kitan Whimsical Crowner''Capricious Young Man』And made a new intellectual and bright historical drama, and was called" Meiro period drama ".Humorous and nonsense, it was endorsed by an audience who was disgusted by the gruesome swashbucklers and dark tendencies of the past.[40].

In the 1930s, there were years when the number of historical drama produced exceeded that of modern drama, and historical drama supported the golden age before the war in terms of both mass and mass.[44].

Historical films and national films

Starting with Matsunosuke's ninja movie,Oro BloodA nihilistic rebellious hero like "" appears, and after that, "One-kill multi-life sword''Zanjin Zanba SwordWhen a dissident trend movie such as "Kinpachi Kajiwara" appears and the world gets darker, it is called "Meiro period drama" by Chiezou Kataoka and Narutaki group.Kokushi Musou''Capricious Young Man''Tange Sazen Side Story A Million Ryo PotA bright historical drama like "Kinpachi Kajiwara" was born, and it was ridiculed as "a modern drama with a mage", and there was a voice saying that historical things should be drawn seriously this time in a way that opposes this Narutaki-gumi movie. In the 10s, "Abe Clan," "Kaikyotai," and "Genroku Chushingura"The last day of Edo" and other works called historical films were produced.Eventually, as national films, "Pirate Flag Blows", "Signal Fires of Shanghai", and "Kamikaze Blows" were made, and it became an era when filmmakers could not freely make movies.[45]..Then, as a national policy, the integration of movie companies was promoted, and Nikkatsu's production department and Shinko Kinema / Daiei Film were merged to establish Dainippon Film (Daiei), and the first works were Bando Tsumasaburo, Kataoka Chiezo, and Ichikawa.

In Japanese movies until the defeat, scenes such as bloodshed, gambling, and kissing were banned by the authorities.The historical drama is no exception, and no matter how many people were killed in the sword fight, and even in the scene of seppuku, it was cut by censorship because it was bloody.[Annotation 32].Bando TsuzumasaburoWhen slashing his opponent, he used a sword fight called "two-step sword fight" in which he hit the blade and then pulled it again, but this was also cut because "it feels like he slashed to the bone."In general, all "realistic sword fights" were cut by censorship.

Also, the first time I used the sound effect when slashing a person with a swashbuckler was in 1935 (Showa 10).Oiso"so,Hiroshi InagakiThe director's idea was to use a sound effect that was a reverse rotation of the clapperboard sound.However, this sound effect is also treated as "censorship pending" [46].

The rise and fall of historical drama of each company

The production company of postwar historical filmsShochiku,Toho,Daiei,Toei,Shintoho,Nikkatsu,Takarazuka movie[Annotation 34](Toho's subsidiary company) and so on.

Immediately after the end of the war, Toho split due to internal conflicts and labor disputes, and Shintoho was formed in March 1947. Because of that, I decided to distribute it voluntarily.

On the other hand, it was established in 1938 before the war and started as an entertainment company.Toyoko movieHowever, after the war in 1947, he entered the movie production industry and started production activities by renting the Daiei No. XNUMX Studio (later Toei Kyoto Studio) in Kyoto Taihata, which was owned by Daiei at that time.Toyoko movieSince it does not have its own distribution network, it was initially related to distribution to Daiei, but it was not possible to manage under the umbrella of Daiei, so in order to break away from the subcontractor that relies on Daiei for distribution, with the support of the Tokyu Group Own distribution companyTokyo movie distributionWas made in October 1949.However, the deficit increased, so the Tokyu Group had the same deficit.Taisen movie[Annotation 35]とToyoko movieとTokyo movie distribution[Annotation 36]Was merged in April 1951 (Showa 26)ToeiThe name was changed and the distribution was entrusted to Toho.At that time, Toho did not have the ability to produce on its own due to the aftermath of the turmoil, so it distributed the works of Takarazuka and Tokyo movies, and also distributed Toei works there. Met[50]..However, the partnership between Toei and Toho ended in just one year.It is said that Toei repelled when Toho tried to bring Toei under its umbrella.[51]..Then, with the outbreak of the Korean War in 1950, the policy of GHQ changed drastically and it became possible to produce historical drama. Eventually, Toei established a double show in order to secure and expand its own distribution network, and there was a Toei entertainment version. As Nakamura Kinnosuke and Higashi Chiyonosuke made their debut and became very popular, they jumped to the top of the industry at once.

It was also an era when the center of the movie became a historical drama due to the program picture centered on the historical drama.

Until then, after the war, Chiezou appeared in contemporary drama series such as "Bannai Tarao" and "Kindaichi Kosuke", and Utaemon appeared in so-called glossy things such as "Onatsu Seijuro" and "Glossy Killing" although it was a historical drama. Was. In 1950, Chiezou was the first to revive the traditional historical drama and released the first "Irezumi Judge" "Sakurahana Ranbu no Maki" and "Ochihana Confrontation no Maki" directed by Kunio Watanabe, and in 1951, directed by Masahiro Makino.

However, Tetsuro Tamba and Shigeru Amachi made their debut from Shintoho, and after the bankruptcy of Shintoho, they moved to television without being bound by the Five-Company Agreement.


The production department of Nikkatsu was absorbed by Daiei in 1942, and after the war it was a movie entertainment company, but it resumed the production department in 1954, and at the same time, it was a historical drama, directed by Eisuke Takizawa, who was a Narutaki group, and a new national drama. Produced "Kunisada Chuji" and "Hell's Swordsman Hirate Sake" starring Tatsumi Ryutaro, and also directed by Eisuke Takizawa and starring Shogo Shimada "Rokunin no Ansatsu" and Rentaro Mikuni "Edo Issui no Mushi".[Annotation 56]However, due to the popularity of Yujiro Ishihara, he created a program picture centered on the swashbuckler line of contemporary drama, and eventually stopped producing historical drama.However, in 1957 (Showa 32), director Yuzo Kawashima, who made all the stars of the company at that time appear,Bakumatsu Taiyoden"[Annotation 57]I am making a unique historical drama[57].


Shochiku on the Bungei line has few historical dramas, and most of them are contemporary dramas on Ofuna, and it was not possible to produce historical dramas as expected at the studio in Kyoto. In 1951, the all-star cast "Oedo Five Men(Director Daisuke Ito), and in 1953, he played the role of Daisuke Ii in the eighth generation Matsumoto Koshiro (later Matsumoto Hakuo).Flower life(Director Tatsuo Osone), "Chushingura Hana no Maki / Yuki no Maki" (Director Tatsuo Osone), in which the same 1954th generation Koshiro Matsumoto played Oishi Kakusuke in 3, and three years later, in 1957, Osone again. Director Tatsuo said, "Otada Shinzo"[Annotation 58]Was produced, but as a series, it was called a singing movie starHirokichi TakadaStarring "Den seven catch bookIn the series, Shochiku's Kabuki actors are at the core, and new plays and freelance actors set aside, and Jushiro Konoe and Kokichi Takada are involved in this, and there are newcomers.Miki MoriWas planned to grow into the next generation historical drama star.However, Miki Mori died in an accident from 1960 to 61, Kokichi Takada and Jushiro Konoe were transferred to Toei, and Koshiro Matsumoto, the eighth generation of the Kabuki world, and many others were transferred to Toho. The Shochiku period drama has declined. In 1962, even if I tried to make Chushingura, I could not form a cast and the old work "Otada ShinzoWas re-edited from "Kanadehon Chushingura" and then "Kanadehon Chushingura" was produced by using Shogo Shimada, a new national drama.[58].

In addition to this, director Satsuo Yamamoto distributed by Shochiku in the production of Kabuki-za "Red team haori"[Annotation 59], Director Keisuke Kinoshita "Fuefuki River"[Annotation 60],Narayama Setsu, Directed by Tadashi Imai and starring Rentaro Mikuni, "Yoru no Tsuzumi", directed by Masaki Kobayashi and starring Tatsuya Nakadai.Accused, But eventually decided not to shoot a historical drama in Kyoto, and in 1964, directed by Masahiro Shinoda and starring Tetsuro Tamba.assassinationFinally, in 1965, the Kyoto Taihata Photo Studio was closed.[59].


After the tie-up with Shintoho and Toei disappeared after the war, Toho, who had been distributing Takarazuka movies and Tokyo movie productions, focused on preparing his own production system, and in 1954, he made a special effects " In the same year that "Godzilla" was a hit, director Akira Kurosawa "Seven Samurai, Director Hiroshi Inagaki "Musashi Miyamoto] Was also a hit, and the results were improved.[60].

After that, for Toho on the special effects and comedy line, there was director Akira Kurosawa in the historical drama, "Cobweb castle''Hidden Fortress, And then "Bouncer"[Annotation 61]"Sanjuro Tsubaki] Was produced.In these two movies, Akira Kurosawa is real and powerful, unlike the sword fighting that puts the beauty in the foreground, with a style that sticks to stylistic beauty like the Toei period drama and decides coolly mainly by star actors. And, it became a hot topic by expressing the sword fight that is willing to describe cruel.However, Akira Kurosawa wrote in 2, "Red beardFinally left Toho.Hiroshi Inagaki, who was a member of the Narutaki group, joined Toho in 1950, and the trilogy of "Kojiro Sasaki" and starring Toshiro Mifune "Musashi Miyamoto"[Annotation 62]I made a trilogy and later saidYagyu Martial Arts Book''Osaka Castle StoryAnd in 1962, as a movie commemorating the 30th anniversary of Toho's founding, "Chushingura Flower Roll Snow Roll] Is being taken.In the early postwar period, director Masahiro Makino, who later moved to Toei, said,Jiro Cho Sangokushi』All nine parts[Annotation 63]Is making[61].

Decline of Toei period drama

In the 1962 New Year movie, Toho "Sanjuro TsubakiIs Toei "Tokaido Whirlwind"[Annotation 64]Overwhelmingly, the world of Toei's splendid stylistic beauty has changed to a world of vivid and powerful historical drama.[Annotation 65]The realistic sword fight gradually bored the audience with the gorgeousness of the Toei period drama and the elegance of the action, and just before this, the appearance of "Second Toei" made a number of historical drama crudely randomized. It led to the decline of Toei period drama[Annotation 66].

Since then, Toei has been plagued by the slump in historical drama, and after that, as a group conflict historical drama, "XNUMX Ninja" and "Thirteen thugs''Great KillingHowever, the tide of historical drama could not be stopped, and eventually the yakuza movie dominated the line, the original historical drama of Toei disappeared, and the period drama of the sexy line entered the era of stagnation. I went.

The disappearance of historical films

1955年(昭和30年)には当時の大手映画会社6社で年間174本の時代劇が製作され、1960年(昭和35年)で合計168本の製作本数を数えたが、わずか2年後の1962年(昭和37年)には77本に半減し、中村錦之助が東映を退社した1966年(昭和41年)の翌年には15本となり、1973年以降は年間5本程度を製作する状況となった[62]..The axis of historical drama shifts from the movie world to television, and from this period the number of historical drama on television increases rapidly.

In the world of cinema, Toei, which was said to be the kingdom of historical drama, switched to the Nintendo line from around 1964 and discontinued the historical drama in 1966 (Showa 41), and the center of the historical drama moved to Daiei.However, with a double sign with Shintaro Katsu, "NemokushiroRaizo Ichikawa, who made a hit in the series, died at a young age in 1969 (Showa 44), and Daiei, which rapidly lost its vividness, went bankrupt in 1971 (Showa 46).[63]..After that, in the 1970s, "Katsu Pro produced" "starring Tomisaburo Wakayama.Lone Wolf and CubThe series was a hit, and Shochiku starred Hideki Takahashi in "Musashi MiyamotoIn addition, with an all-star cast, "The Last Samurai''Cloud Nijizaemon''Dark hunterIn 1978 (Showa 53), Toei revived the historical drama for the first time in 12 years.Conspiracy of the Yagyu clanWas a big hit, and since then "The Fall of Ako Castle''Sanada Yukimura's plot''Tokugawa clan collapse''Shadow Warriors Hattori Hanzo, And in the 1980s,Makai Reincarnation''Satomi HakkendenIs produced by director Kinji Fukasaku in partnership with Haruki Kadokawa.[64]..However, since then, there has been no historical drama that has become a hot topic, and it is becoming a thing of the past as a movie genre.Historical films have been in a long-term slump for nearly 50 years[65]And the main stage of historical drama has already changed to television, and since then, television has supported historical drama as an industry.[66].

TV period drama

In February 1953 (Showa 28), NHK TV opened and the history of TV historical drama began at the same time as the start of TV broadcasting.However, at that time, it was a live broadcast in a 2-minute studio drama by a TV camera, and "Hanshichi Jidaigeki" starring Takeo Oikawa, which was broadcast in July of the same year, was the first historical drama on TV, and in June 30, NTV The broadcast "Enoken's Mito Komon Manyuuki" is said to be the first historical drama of commercial broadcasting.[Annotation 67]..In the early evening, "Akado Suzunosuke" was a historical drama for children.[Annotation 68]Programs such as "Sarutobi Sasuke" and "Sun Wukong" were broadcast.

It was Toei that pioneered the shift of historical drama production from film to television.Toei, which originally produced TV movies for children from the opening of the TV station and was more active in TV than other companies, gave up early due to the decline of the historical drama in the movie, and in 1964 (Showa 39).Toei Kyoto TV ProductionWhen he established, he moved the staff of the historical drama and produced a number of hits from there.And the former silver screen star starred in the TV historical drama, Hashizo Okawa "Zenigata Heiji, Chiezou Kataoka "Military guards guide box, Utaemon Ichikawa "Hatamoto bored man, Manya Kinnosuke "Lone Wolf and CubWas a popular genre of the golden time in the mid-1970s.[67]..In addition, Toshiro Mifune "Wilderness Ronin, Shintaro Katsu "Zatoichi story, A silver screen star established an independent production company and was involved in the production.Oedo investigation network], Nikkatsu, who lacked the know-how of TV historical drama production, was involved in the production.

1980-2000 TV historical drama

On the other hand, in the 1980s, there was a tendency to emphasize culture for young people in historical drama, and although historical drama was produced using young actors, the audience rating was sluggish across the board, and the unpopularity of historical drama became apparent. Television stations have reduced historical drama programs.And the end of broadcasting of the long-term series "Shadow Warriors" and "Hisatsu" series has come to be said to be the decline of historical drama in the world of television.[68].

However, in the latter half of the 1980s, Nippon Television produced "In 1985 (Showa 60)" against the Red and White Song Battle on New Year's Eve.Chushingura, The following year, 1986 (Showa 61)White Tiger Corps”Raised a high audience rating, and in 1987 (62) the NHK Taiga drama“Solitary Dragon MasamuneRecorded a high audience rating, and in 1989 (Heisei XNUMX), Fuji TV's "Female mouse kid''Onihira criminal record book』Beginning, and TV TOKYO's New Year wide historical drama has continued since 1981, four programs lined up during the golden time on January 1991, 1, creating an atmosphere of historical drama revival, Nikko in 2 Opened in 4 locations startingEramuraThe know-how of historical drama production was incorporated likeTheme parkWas also built.

Historical examination

Historical examinationAlthough specialized staff are assigned to many historical drama works, as the years go by, they are omitted due to various circumstances, and the parts that are different from the original ones are increasing, which is a work with a strong literary element. But it is no exception.

Until the 1960sTooth black,EyebrowHowever, it is a distant past custom that was already obsolete in the Meiji era, and it is difficult for modern people to accept it because it seems that the teeth are black and the hikimayu is eerie. It can be said that even if the role corresponds to the above, it is not excluded from some roles to have black teeth and hikimayu.Also, originallyLoinclothMen's underwear that should beMonkey crotchThere are many miscellaneous parts, such as the fact that the story is about the Genroku era, but the clothes and hairstyle are the end of the Edo period.On the other hand, of womenJapanese hair OfWigPreviously, all wigs were commonHigh definitionWith the generalization of recording, we have come to use partial wigs that make the hairline look natural.AlsoDeputy official-Awakening-Concentric-DwarfIn many cases, strict examinations have been omitted due to the fact that the clothing for minor roles such as, and the parts such as food stalls and buildings are reused at the shooting site and related to sets and tools.

Japanese sword OfKnifeThen, since there was almost no sound such as sword attack, sword pulling, and sword delivery, it was originally silent, but in the 60s,Bouncer"When"Three samurai』Appearance gradually variousSound effectCan now be inserted.

One of the most different is the horseback riding scene, which should have been almost nonexistent in Japan before the Edo period.Thoroughbred,Quarter horseIt is replaced by the mainstream riding horse in modern Japan with a body height of 160 cm or more, which has been bred in the West.Body height (height to shoulder) is about 130-135 cmJapanese native horseHowever, the physique of modern Japanese actors, which have become larger, is not balanced with Japanese native horses and is inferior in visual appearance, and the number of horses is smaller than that of riding horses. It is a factor that it is extremely difficult to do.Reputed for the rigor of historical evidenceAkira KurosawaEven the director uses Western horses when it comes to horses[72][73].

Also, for daily necessities and furnishings such as pottery and lacquer ware, use the actual products of the time and crafts created by modern craftsmen with the same techniques as before, and the techniques of the time for shooting It is often difficult to manufacture only the required amount at present due to budgetary reasons, and as a result of searching for and substituting modern products that reproduce expression techniques similar to those of the Edo period within a limited time and budget. In terms of technique, expression, fashion, etc., it often happens that it does not match the time setting.
