    Sanjuro (Toho, 1962). Japanese B2 (20" X 28.5") Alternate Style with Theater Snipe (20" X 29.75").
    In this Akira Kurosawa classic, Toshiro Mifune is a Japanese samurai defending a group of men and their families being suppressed by the superintendent of their village. Showing samurai finesse, only Mifune can bring down the corrupt officials. Original release Japanese posters for Sanjuro are incredibly scarce, and this is only the second time Heritage has offered this very rare alternate style. It is most likely a regional style, though not obvious and perhaps never seen in Tokyo during the film's original run. Already in good shape, this country-of-origin poster looks even better after touchup to the folds, pinholes at the top, very minor border tears, and a horizontal crease at the bottom. Included with the poster is an original Japanese theater snipe. Very Fine on Linen.

    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
