Posters for Miki Sugimoto’s 1973 pinku flick Sukeban–Kankain Dasso, aka Girl Boss: Escape from Reform School abound online, but Toei Studios routinely had more multiple versions of their promos and, as far as we can tell, this particular door length sheet has not appeared before. At least, not uncensored. Sugimoto starred in the movie when she was a pinku icon, yet today it is obscure. It has no IMDB entry at all, and has only a filmography listing on both English and Japanese Wikipedia. We saw the movie several years ago and can’t remember it well enough to give a real summary, but the title tells the story. Besides, if you know anything about pinku, then you already know what happens. Sukeban–Kankain Dasso premiered in Japan today in 1973.
