Despite her top billing, Martha Hyer does not play the title character in Geisha Girl. Filmed on location in Tokyo, the story concerns the misadventures of airline hostess Peggy Burns (Martha Hyer) and her GI suitors Rocky (William Andrews) and Archie (Archer MacDonald). Somehow or other, the intrepid trio comes into the possession of a top-secret weapon, leaving them at the mercy of a sabotage ring. The plot is essentially an excuse to display for the edification of American viewers such Japanese traditions as a Kabuki theater presentation, a Buddhist religious ceremony, and--of course--a geisha house. With the exception of the three stars, most of the cast of Geisha Girl is Japanese.
