EDO GIRL DETECTIVE
(Hibari Torimonocho Kanzashi Koban)

Oshichi, a famous girl detective, takes it upon herself to investigate the murder of a woman, which occurs during an event for the festival of the Asakusa Shrine.
MISORA Hibari was a huge star in Japan at that time, and her immense popularity led to many film roles. In those days Toei Films usually featured a musical number of some sort, and this is no exception. The tradition of incorporating music and dance into jidai-geki films lives on to this day, as witnessed by the 'Step-Dancing' segment in the current ZATOICHI 2004 by Beat TAKESHI.
In addition to fine acting and an intelligent story, there is some excellent swordplay here, with the top action hero SATOMI Kotaro teaming up with the heroine as a drunken ronin with superb sword skills, which are put to good use in having to save her from the murderers trying to avoid punishment.

Starring: MISORA Hibari, AZUMA Chiyonosuke, SATOMI Kotaro
Directed by SAWASHIMA Tadashi

She teams up here with veteran stars Konoe Jushiro (best known for his roles as Yagyu Jubei in the Toei and Shochiku series THE YAGYU SECRET CHRONICLES) and Yamagata Isao, a longtime character actor (usually a villain-he's best known as the Governor in the third Baby Cart film BABY CART TO HADES).

SECRET OF THE GOLD COIN (Hibari Torimonocho Jirai Koban)

A girl detective, Oshichi, exposes a ploy by a retainer of daimyo. One of the best episodes in the ongoing detective series starring the ever-popular Misora Hibari.
Her popularity was unrivaled in the 1950's and she still has a great following today, both for her acting as well as singing. This was the height of entertainment during a happier era, when movies were not dark and bloody epics with little story, and lots of special effects like they are today. There is real character development in this story, and expert jidai geki actors to make this a minor classic of its kind.

Starring: MISORA Hibari, AZUMA Chiyonosuke
Directed by: FUKUDA Kinnosuke
