    Description

    Genji Monogatari (Daiei, 1951). Japanese B2 (20" X 29.5").
    This classic Japanese cinema title translates to Tale of Genji and was another copasetic collaboration between Japanese director Kosaburo Yoshimura and screenwriter Kaneto Shindo. Based on a long-popular novel by Murasaki Shikibu, the film stars Kazuo Hasegawa as Genji, the illegitimate offspring of a Japanese potentate. Seemingly irresistible to women, Genji accepts the philosophy of "love 'em and leave 'em" as a matter of course. Only when his heart is broken by Awaji (Machiko Kyo) does Genji realizes how much pain he himself has caused. Visually, the film is a feast, capturing its 8th-century time-frame with pinpoint accuracy. Posters for this film are very rare and this is the first time we have offered a poster on this title. Other than a few tiny pinpoint stains the poster is in wonderful condition. Very Fine+ on Linen.


    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
