    Description

    High and Low (Toho, 1963). Folded, Fine. Japanese B2 (20" X 28.5").
    One of director Akira Kurosawa's most accessible movies for English audiences, this taut police crime drama was loosely based on Ed McBain's popular "87th Precinct" novel, King's Ransom. The film follows an executive of a shoe company (Toshiro Mifune) who becomes a victim of extortion when his chauffeur's son is kidnapped and held for ransom. This country-of-origin poster , one of two styles, features the cast including Toshiro Mifune, Tatsuya Nakadai, Kyoko Kagawa, and Tatsuya Mihashi. The poster has a number of pinholes in the all corners, as well as slight fold separation in the middle right side.


    Estimate: $400 - $800.
