Black Rose Mansion

1969 NR

Kinji Fukasaku directs this quirky, noirish 1969 film starring female impersonator Akihiro Maruyama. When the wealthy Kyohei (Eitaro Ozawa) hires singer "Black Rose" (Maruyama) to perform in his exclusive men's club, he gets more than he bargains for when she brings dozens of murderous ex-lovers out of the woodwork -- at the same time that Kyohei and his son begin to fall in love with her.
