This is an original, French eight panel movie poster from 1985 for Ran starring Tatsuya Nakadai, Akira Terao, Jinpachi Nezu, Daisuke Ryu, and Mieko Harada. Akira Kurosawa directed the Japanese/French film based on Shakespeare's King Lear. Benjamin Baltimore is the artist for the poster.
The billboard-style poster measures 118.5” x 155.75” (approximately 10 feet by 13 feet) and was printed in eight sections designed to overlap. The poster is in very good to excellent condition with tiny pinholes in the corners from previous display. It was folded at the time of printing. Most folds flatten out nicely for framing and are often desirable for vintage, collectible movie posters.
Please look closely at the photo (this is the exact poster you are buying). It is not cropped or a stock image.
This very rare and collectible poster, printed in 1985 to promote the French theatrical release of Ran, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
