There is cool, cooler and then the Red Peony Gambler. The style she cuts is even sharper than the short sword she uses to discourage her enemies.
This was a series of eight films that ran from 1968 through 1972 and propelled actress Fuji Junko into stardom with her portrayal of a female gambler and swordswoman who roams the land looking for revenge and redemption for her family.
The Red Peony Gambler films take place during the 1890's or Mid-Meiji Era.
