    Description

    Gate of Hell (Metropolitan Films, 1954). Folded, Very Fine-. Belgian (14" X 22").
    Notable not just for its gripping plot but also for its incredible cinematography, Teinosuke Kinugasa's landmark drama became one of Japan's first films to gain international acclaim. Thanks in no small part to the powerful performances of stars Machiko Kyo and Kazuo Hasegawa, the picture also benefitted from Kinugasa's expert usage of Eastman's color technology. The poster has slight edge and fold wear, pinholes, very minor tears, and some creases. Other signs of handling include unobtrusive stains and smudges, thin dust shadows, as well as mirrored surface indentations.


    Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
