THE MYSTERIANS Original U.S. Six sheet. 81x81. Fine.
Original U.S. six sheet poster (81x81) for the Ishiro Honda sci-fi thriller, THE MYSTERIANS (1958) starring Kenji Sahara, Yumi Shirakawa, and Momoko Kochi. This was one of the first Japanese films to be shot in anamorphic widescreen (TohoScope). The film tells the story of aliens who arrive on earth and pretend to be peaceful but are discovered to be responsible for a giant robot that is destroying cities. Japan's Self-defense Forces gave assistance to this production and allowed the filming of military equipment and personnel. This original U.S. six sheet poster was theater used and the four panels were assembled at the time of use. It's been stored that way for many years and we have simply unfolded it and photographed it. These kinds of posters can be linen-backed and made to look quite spectacular. Toho is the producing studio but the film was distributed in the United States by MGM. Condition: very good.
