Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Black Lizard (Kurotakage) takes place in the sub rosa world of organized crime in Japan. Famed female impersonator Akihiro Maruyama stars as a Dragon Lady type called the Lizard. In this guise, she (he?) masterminds all illegal activities in Tokyo. The Lizard jeopardizes her power when she falls in love with detective Isao Kimura. The grotesquery of the storyline and characters is emphasized by the cameo appearance of playwright Yukio Mishima, playing a "Human Statue"-that is, an embalmed corpse.
