Description

    Gate of Hell (Daiei, 1953). Japanese B1 (29" X 42"). Originally released as "Jigokumen," this Japanese drama tells the story of a samurai (Kazuo Hasegawa) whose loyalty to his master is rewarded by the granting of his any desire. Unfortunately, he desires Lady Kesa (Machiko Kyo), the wife of a rival samurai (Isao Yamagata). Filmed shortly after the end of U.S. occupation in Japan, it was the first Japanese film to gain true artistic acclaim in the States. Using Eastmancolor film, "Gate of Hell" was both Daiei's first color film and the first Japanese color film to be released outside of Japan. It won the 1954 Palme d'or Grand Prize award at the Cannes Film Festival, a 1955 Academy Honorary Award for "Best Foreign Language Film," and the 1954 New York Film Critics Circle Award for "Best Foreign Language Film." This country of origin poster was produced in Japan for English speaking markets. Such paper is incredibly rare and highly sought after. This rolled example has minor corner creases, light wear along the edges, and the faintest of wrinkling. The passionate image and rich color exemplify the mood of director Teinosuke Kinugasa's stirring masterpiece. Rolled, Near Mint.
