    The 400 Blows (Towa, R-1989). Rolled, Very Fine/Near Mint. Japanese B1 (28.75" X 40.5") Hisamitsu Noguchi Artwork.
    Ground-breaking French director Francois Truffaut came to fame with this, his first feature film about a 12 year old boy dealing with a bleak life on his own. Along with Goddard, Truffaut would usher in the New Wave of French film making. This is a reissue poster for the film shown in Japan in 1989. Displaying few signs of handling, this poster has slight edge wear and soft creases.

    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
