From maverick writer-director Samuel Fuller (Dead Pigeon on Beethoven Street) comes 1959’s The Crimson Kimono (1959), a noir-ish tale of two Los Angeles cops (James Shigeta, Glenn Corbett) attempting to solve the murder of a stripper in Little Tokyo.

But along the way, Fuller typically introduces themes of racism and sexual identity, particularly when a young woman (Victoria Shaw), a possible key witness, enters the picture, disrupting the relationship of the two police partners.

Twilight Time’s Blu-ray edition features the following bonus materials:
-Isolated Music Track
-Sam Fuller Storyteller
-Curtis Hanson: The Culture of The Crimson Kimono
-Original Theatrical Trailers
