UGETSU (1953) Japanese poster


Vintage original 39 x 27″ (97 x 67 cm.) poster, Japan. Masayuki Mori, Machiko Kyô, Kinuyo Tanaka, dir: Kenji Mizoguchi; Daiei Studios. One of the finest and rarest of posters of classic Japanese cinema.

The film tells the story of the struggles of the people during the Japanese Civil Wars of the sixteenth century. The original complete title Ugetsu Monogatari roughly translates as “Tales of the Moon and Rain”.

This poster does not appear to have been used and, though originally tri-folded, it has been stored rolled. There are spots of soiling in the background area between the two prominent characters, otherwise it is very clean and a wonderful design. ABOUT FINE.
