Rare Original Japanese Theatrical Poster for True Account of the Ando Gang - Story of the Attack (Toei) (1973) aka The Ando Gang Documentary Film (実録安藤組 襲撃篇) (1973), produced by Toei studios, directed by Junya Sato (Bullet Train, Golgo 13) and starring Noboru Ando, Tetsuro Tamba and Tatsuo Umemiya. This is one of the very best true account / jitsuroku style yakuza films ever made, unfortunately never been released on DVD.

Not a reproduction or copy. This was made for theatrical use.

This is the huge, ultra-rare and absolutely gorgeous “tatekan” poster. Tatekan posters are twice the normal size, made of two B2 size (each of them roughly 51.5 ×72.8 cm or 20.3 x 28.7 inches) sheets. These sheets were manufactured and shipped to movie theatres separately, and the theatre owners would have to glue them together. Such posters are no longer made in Japan.

The poster shows some damage (though it’s in unusually good condition), as should be expected from a poster that was manufactured 47 years ago and has been used in Japanese theatres. In my opinion that only shows the poster has seen life and has 47 years of history behind it. But please see the photos carefully. The damage is as follows:

1) There is a folding mark just below the middle of the poster, slightly below where the top and bottom halves are joined together. Please see photo 3.

2) The top and bottom parts are not joined together 100% seamlessly. This is typical to Tatekan posters. I own a lot of them, and I have never seen one were top and bottom match perfectly. Please see photo 3.

3) There are a couple of small, cracks in the bottom, ranging from a few millimetres to approx 1 cm. There is also a tiny hole that is almost invisible near the bottom. Please see photo 4.

4) There are almost invisible pin holes in the top. Please see photos 2 and 5

5) Other minor damage. See Photo 2 (note: the big “holes” are not holes, they are film marks that are part of the artwork)

Please see the photos above. They were taken carefully to display the product with absolute honesty.  What you see above is exactly what you get.

Free worldwide shipping. Payment via Paypal, please. Any possible Paypal fees (if any) are the buyer's responsibility. Ships from Sapporo, Japan via airmail. I will roll the poster and send it in a strong tube.
