Friend of the Gutter Prof. Earl Jackson is interviewed about the films, Rampo, Yukio Mishima and drag and cabaret star, Akihiro Miwa! “The 1962 was adapted by Kaneto Shindô and directed by Umetsugu Inoue while the 1968 was adapted by Masashige Narusawa and directed by Kinji Fukasaku. Both were based on the stage play version by Yukio Mishima.
