    Description

    Jinsei no onimatsu (Shochiku Kinema Kenkyu-jo, 1935). Pre-War Japanese (14.5" x 20.75"). We know very little about this film, save that it was released as a sound film in 1935 (Japan still released silents until well into the late 1930s, although director Heinosuke Gosho was an early pioneer of sound in that country, releasing the first Japanese talking film in 1931). Nevertheless, this is a dramatic poster, far different than the photomontage paper that would be the rule in Japan following the war. The poster offered here displays some very light edge wear, a small tear at the top, and a bend with a dust shadow at the lower right. These are minor considerations, however, especially considering the incredible rarity of pre-war Japanese movie paper. Rolled, Very Fine+.

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