  • I need help locating and purchasing a Japanese film made and released in 1973 or 1974. It was about models and the star of the film was an occidential actress that had been in a James Bond film as a supporting role only. Models from Japanese modeling agency Eddie Arab Modeling Studio also appear in the film. It had two directors one French and the other Japanese. I would be most grateful in any assistance you can provide.
    Thank you. Sincerely,
