    Description

    Menace of the Rising Sun (Universal, 1942). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Wartime propaganda doesn't get much more graphic than this! After the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, America went to war against Japan not only on the battlefield, but in the arena of popular culture as well. From comic books to popular novels to studio films, the Japanese were portrayed as buck-toothed, subhuman fiends, a characterization that reaches its zenith on this striking title card. In superb unrestored condition, it shows some pinholes in the image area, a replaced top right corner, and corner bumps, but is otherwise extremely attractive and displayable. A very rare piece, you'll want to bid on this one today. Fine+.


    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
