Here’s a lovely poster from the early 1970s for a film starring little known pinku actress Michiyo Mako. As far as we know this film never had a Western release, so without an official English title we have to make one up. We see symbols for “characteristic,” “banquet,” “human,” and “wife.” The fifth figure, in the middle, eluded us for what seemed like forever until we figured out it was a 5. So we’ll title this film “Banquet for Five Wives.” Or maybe we should title it "Banquet of Five Wives." It's always important to distinguish who's doing the cooking and who's doing the eating.
