Program Abstract: "This is the story of a swaky female jewel thief who kidnaps nubile youths and ferries them to a hilariously glitzoid secret island, there to turn them into naked love statues - one of whom, weirdly enough, is portrayed by Mishima himself. And that's not all. Miss Lizard is played by the silky transvestite actor Akihiro Miwa who flounces around in an impossible collection of boas and chokers and turns every flourish of her cigarette holder into an over-the-top arabesque." - Stephen Schiff, Vanity Fair
