Or do you know anything about it?

Wakanohana monogatari dohyou no oni

Black and white film made in 1956. Directed by Kenjiro Morinaga and produced by Nikkatsu. Wakanohana Kanji I plays the title role himself.

I pinched the pic from this page http://www.museum.or.jp/modules/topics/?action=view&id=60 of the Internet Museum, but it's all in kanji.

There is a documentary on YT about him which shows a little montage of the film starting at 15:05

Film info from the Nikkatsu studio's website with a blurry translated screenshot of it. Would be a great find to be able to watch this from any video sharing sites.

Here's an animated version from 1994

Lovely touch near the end where you see a baseball floating down the river, had me getting weepy.
