This is an original, rolled, Japanese B3 movie poster from 1937 or 1938 for Gueule d'amour (released in the U.S. as "Lady Killer") starring Jean Gabin, Mireille Balin, Pierre Etchepare, Henri Poupon, and Jean Ayme. Jean Gremillon directed the romantic drama. Original, Japanese movie posters from the 1930s are extremely rare due to paper shortages during World War II. There are not many that have survived.
The poster measures 14" x 20" and is in very good to excellent condition with a very faint, horizontal crease across the center of the poster from it being stored with a poster that was once folded. The poster has never actually been folded.
Please look closely at the photo (this is the exact poster you are buying). The black squares in the corners of the poster are magnets and are not pins.
This extremely rare and collectible poster, printed in 1937 or 1938 to promote the initial, Japanese theatrical release of Gueule d'amour (Lady Killer), is not a reproduction or a reprint.
