    Description

    Sansho Dayu (Daiei, 1954). Japanese B1 (29" X 42"). Also known as "Sansho the Bailiff" this 1954 film by director Kenji Mizoguchi is considered to be one of his finest achievements. One of only ten post-war films that Mizoguchi made before his death in 1956, it was released to wide critical acclaim and won the Silver Lion Award for Directing at the Venice Film Festival, which brought him to the attention of Western critics and film-makers. This rolled country of origin poster was printed for use in English speaking markets, making it very rare paper. This example has light edge wear, minor corner creases and a small tear in the top border. Rolled, Very Fine/Near Mint.
