    Description

    Throne of Blood (Curzon Film, 1957). Very Fine- on Linen. Silk Screen British Quad (30" X 40").
    "Ambition is false fame and will fall, death will reign, man falls in vain." Akira Kurosawa's adaptation of Macbeth combines aspects of Shakespeare with Japanese Noh drama, with its use of masks and Buddhist philosophy, to make a stunning reimagining of "the Scottish Play." Kurosawa favorite actor Toshiro Mifune is the military commander who comes across a ghost woman in the fog after a battle. The woman's prophesy that Mifune will become emperor is brought to fruition with the help of murder. It's Heritage's first time to offer any British paper for the film, and this example has light touchup applied to a few small tears and a splice in the top left corner. These issues are still apparent, as are thin scuffs in the printing, a minor nick in the top right corner, and light edge wear. Very Fine- on Linen.


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