There is a guy named Minami Ryuta, a theater/Shakespeare scholar from  
the Nagoya Kyoiku Daigaku who gave a paper at our Film and Media  
Studies forum last month on the "samurai musical" with Enoken, etc.,  
as precursor to Kitano's Zatoichi closing scene.  He has assembled a  
pretty astonishing archive of scenes and references from the 1920's  
on.  If this is of interest please let me know.
