    Description

    Rififi (Towa, 1955). Folded, Very Fine. Japanese B2 (20" X 28.5").
    Never offered before at Heritage is this dramatic Japanese B2 from a classic French crime film. Writer/director François Truffaut once called Rififi the best film noir he'd ever seen. Based on a novel by Auguste le Breton, this classic stars Jean Servais, Carl Möhner, Robert Manuel and Jules Dassin as four men who plan the perfect jewelry heist. Dassin also directs the film, and masterfully creates one of the most brilliant moments in cinematic history, a 28-minute segment without dialogue or music, only the sound of the robbery being carried out. This beautiful and rare Japanese poster has no issues other than pinholes in the corners and the most minor edgewear. The poster displays beautifully.


    Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
