aka: Hibari torimonocho: Kanzashi koban
aka: Gekijōban "Aa! Megami-sama!
aka: 劇場版「ああっ女神さまっ
This is the first "Detective Hibari" movie, chronicling the adventures of a female detective in Shogunate era Japan. This first case takes HIbari and her two sidekicks down many dark alleys trying to find out why a beauty queen was murdered w/her golden hairpin she'd just won in the beauty contest.

More info
Hibari was a gigantic post-war hit-making singer who was said to have helped Japan heal from defeat with her love songs that were listened to as though to a nation.
One of these songs spoke of "your judo spirit" which just melts the heart, & has emotional impact even if you don't understand the language. Several of her songs remain to this day as "standards" as the best of an Edith Piaf or Judy Garland.
And like Judy Garland, she started out entertaining when she was just a kid. Born in Yokohama in 1937, of Korean descent, she was originally named Kazue Kato.
Her performance name Hibari Misora means "Songbird in a Beautiful Sky." She began filming her first feature at age 11 & by age twelve was already a household name throughout Japan.
She died rather young, at age 52, of a hepatitis-related illness, though it was given out that she died of pneumonia because of the associations of chronic hepatis with drug use.
She looks quite ill in her final concert, called The Phoenix Concert (Fushichou Konsaato, 1988) because it was widely believed she was getting well. She was in fact in great pain that night. She could've been mistaken for a woman fifteen years older, but her voice was still in great shape, & as it turned out, it was to be her farewell concert, & a great one happily recorded for posterity.
Hibari was a lesbian (once married & quickly divorced late her life) & because another singing actress from America was internationally believed to be the same (whether true or not), Hibari was frequently called "The Japanese Doris Day." Though in terms of talent I really do think Piaf is a better comparison.
Her co-stars in Hibari torimonocho: Kanzashi Koban were Kotaro Satomi as a ronin & leading man, plus Chiyonosuke Azuma, Shunji (aka Junji) Sakai, Kenji Susukida & Koinosuke Onoe
