Yoshio Tsuchiya, star of _Gasu Ningen Daiichigo_/_The Human Vapor_ (1960), prefers the English version of that film because of how it was re-edited.  In the English version, his character tells the early parts of the story as a flashback (a scene
that is in the Japanese version, just not shown that way), whereas the Japanese version begins as a mystery.  So even though he's not the one saying his lines, he finds the structure works better, and he's probably right, although Brenco Pictures DID
heavily shorten it for US release.
