Just in: Les Plus Belles Escroqueries du Monde 2 panel Japanese movie poster featuring Mie Hama aka “Kissy Suzuki”

This is the only one of these I’ve ever seen. Actually, I can’t say I’ve seen too many posters AT ALL from any country from this movie. I’d be happy if someone would write to me and tell me if it’s any good — it IS a Jean-Luc Godard film right? And it features Catherine Deneuve, among others…

Notably Mie Hama, provocatively and prominently featured on this 2 panel poster from 1964. Now, for those that do not know how big Japanese two panels are, they are two B2 size (~20″ x 29″) posters stacked one on top of the other. So in total this poster stands almost five feet tall.

Mie Hama is a famous actress in Japan and was the first Asian woman to appear in Playboy! But most who know her here know her as “Kissy Suzuki“, Sean Connery‘s “bride” in You Only Live Twice. She starred in 70 movies before that role though! Here’s a link to a great interview with Mie Hama.

A very rare poster and an interesting crossroads of some important film people.
