Lady Snowblood

Tokyo: Toho Company /, 1973. Draft script for the 1973 Japanese film. Based on the 1972-1973 manga written by Kazuo Koike and Kazuo Kamimura.

The story of a woman with a sword in the end of her umbrella who seeks vengeance against the men who murdered her father and raped her mother, leaving a trail of blood in her wake. A gorgeously shot cult classic, and one of the best films of early 1970s samurai cinema. One of Quentin Tarantino’s greatest influences for his "Kill Bill" duology, borrowing plot and thematic elements, character and set design, and even re-creating specific shots.

Off white wrappers, perfect bound with red and blue titles, dated 1973.9.20. 83 leaves, with last page of text numbered "e-28." Mechanical duplication. Pages Near Fine, wrapper a moderately foxed Very Good plus.
