THE AMAZING GINZA BLADE
Slices a tomato so thin you can almost see through it! But wait! There’s more! It also works great on Yakuza!

It’s been a while since we had any Meiko Kaji on the site, so today we have four posters—two normal sized and two panel length—for 1971’s Ginchô wataridori, aka Wandering Ginza Butterfly, and 1972’s Ginchô nagaremono mesuneko bakuchi, aka Wandering Ginza: She-Cat Gambler. Haven’t seen them? Well, in our opinion, part two is vastly better than the first installment, but neither is up to the standard of Lady Snowblood. Still though, there are Yakuza and she kills them. What more could you want? You also get Meg Flower in part one, and Sonny Chiba in part two—both good additions. Kaji is still going strong in show business, by the way, having appeared in nine episodes of the Japanese television series Kekkon Shinai in 2012. We have some extremely rare posters of hers we’ll get to shortly.

PLAYA HATTA
Feets of strength and balance.

Half Japanese-half Anglo actress Janet Hatta started her working career as a flight attendant, then was discovered by a modeling agent, which led to cinema. She appeared in eight Japanese movies between 1974 and 1977 before moving on to television. Her films include Doberman deka with Sonny Chiba, and Ningen no shômei with Yukiko Mishima. No date on this shot, but assume circa 1975.
