Miki Sugimoto in Weekly Playboy’s Feb. 2, 1971 issue, six months before her film debut in Onsen mimizu geisha (温泉みみず芸者). She is introduced as a new model. She’s pretty funny. She says she loves strong men and yakuza movies and wishes to become an actress. Her hobbies are reading manga, cleaning the house, and sleeping. Her first dream of the year (初夢) was about a big guy looking like a pro wrestler attacking her, but Ken Takakura coming to rescue her! Then Ken asked her in a gentle voice to take her clothes off... but before she knew it, Ken’s face has turned into that of her manager!

* In traditional Japanese culture the year’s first dream was believed to be an omen of things to come.

Found on Twitter: a Shinjuku billboard for Toei’s Oct. 1972 double feature Outlaw Killers: Three Mad Dog Brothers (人斬り与太 狂犬三兄弟) and Wandering Ginza Butterfly 2: She-Cat Gambler (銀蝶流れ者 牝猫博奕).

Years of traveling have displaced a lot of what I used to have but in the last 5 years I've been slowly finding a few things here and there online.

(scan from 権威なき権威 カントク野郎 鈴木則文, 2018)

A newspaper ad for Red Peony Gambler, which opened on Sept. 14, 1968.

There’s an interesting bit of info relating to the double bill system in the bottom. It shows Toei’s previous double feature The Fake Game (いかさま博奕 ) and Kigeki keiba hishôhô ippatsu shôbu (喜劇 競馬必勝法 一発勝負) would be playing playing until Sept. 13. After that The Fake Game would be dropped and Red Peony Gambler would enter and play with Ippatsu shôbu. So on Sept. 14, instead of having a brand new double feature, they only replaced one of the films with a new movie.

It also says Ippatsu shôbu would continue to be screened until Sept. 17. Looking jmdb, Wakayama’s Scoundrel Soldier (兵隊極道) is the only Toei release listed for Sept. 18, so I’m guessing it was then paired with Red Peony Gambler.

The rule of thumb is that there was a brand new double feature every two weeks, but there seem to have been times when this wasn’t the case. Looking at jmdb, it seems something odd was going on throughout Sept. 1968 since all Sept. releases are listed alone rather than in pairs (Jul and Oct. releases come in pairs as usual).
