These Minimalist Japanese Posters Make Hollywood Classics Look Even Better

VINTAGE JAPANESE MOVIE POSTERS
Courtesy Heritage Auction

There's nothing quite like a vintage movie poster, but these beauties from Japan raise the bar. We first spotted them on the tumblr 50 Watts (itself a thing of beauty), and we're reposting them here courtesy Heritage Auctions, where they were found.

Spanning from the 1930s to the 1970s, the posters advertise imported movies -- like "Fantastic Voyage," "Play It Again Sam," "A Fistful Of Dollars," and "The Birds." There are also some domestic creations further down, including a poster for the 1970 film Dodes'ka-den (Clackety Clack), designed by Akira Kurosawa himself.
