Mikado is a 1939 musical comedy based on the Gilbert and Sullivan opera, directed by Victor Schertzinger. In the fabled Japanese village of Titi-Pu, a wandering minstrel Nanki-Poo (Kenny Baker) falls in love with a beautiful young woman, Yum-Yum (Jean Colin). When Nanki-Poo learns that Yum-Yum loves another, his heart is broken and he wants to die. Ko-Ko (Martyn Green) is the village's Lord High Executioner. He is required by the Mikado (John Barclay), to perform one execution a day or he loses his job, or even his head. Ko-Ko is getting nervous because the Mikado is due for a visit. In order to fulfill his execution requirement, he sees Nanki-Poo as the perfect candidate, and one who would not suffer so much in losing his life. Ko-Ko and Nanki-poo make an elaborate plan involving Yum-Yum and themselves, thinking it will solve all of their problems. When the Mikado arrives in the village, along with Katisha (Constance Willis), both Ko-Ko and Nanki-Poo learn they may have made a huge mistake.moreless
