O-Tora-san (おトラさん) is a 1957 film directed by Motoyoshi Oda. It is the first film in the O-Tora-san series, based on a television program. There were six films total, released in 1957 and 1958.[3] The stories concern "O-Tora-san", a maid,[2] and are apparently unrelated to Shōchiku's later "Otoko wa Tsurai yo" series.
