Dear Alex,

Regarding the Ojo Okichi credits, by 'recent credits' I meant the short 
standard credits added at the beginning of satellite tv broadcasts (in this 
case by the Shochiku channel Eiga Gekijo). The film itself starts out with 
the 'original credits', which do not look as if they were added at a later stage.
