Here, below left, is the rubber–stamp from the reverse side of the poster, indicating both the German and Japanese Kanji text title for the film in 1940. On the right, a contremporary Imperial Japan ad for the film, also from our Collection:
Note below the English–language wording "Printed in Germany" on the edge of the poster as printed by August Scherl Verlag in Berlin. This wording, which does not appear on the copies of the same poster distributed inside Germany, allowed for the export of the poster sheet to foreign destinations export tax–free.
Finally, here is the way the poster in Germany itself looked, with film title, as shown in the "Werberatschlag" (cinema owners' publicity guide to the film, as published by the Uƒa film studio to encourage movie theatre owners to pre–order posters in time for the film's premiere. The other poster shown above this one is the Peter Pewas designed poster, also available to cinema owners, which is not in our Collection.
