Rod Steiger & Claire Bloom "Rashomon" 1959 LP Signed Autograph
Music From The Broadway Play-"Rashomon"(Carlton 5000)-LP. This LP was released in 1959 and features the music from the Broadway Play-"Rashomon" starring Rod Steiger and Claire Bloom.This 1959 Broadway adaptation ran for six months (January-June) at the Music Box Theatre, New York, starring husband and wife Rod Steiger and Claire Bloom. The Kanin's production was nominated for three Tony awards; for more details see the Internet Broadway Database entry.
The Kanins' somewhat sentimental script sticks closely to the film, including elements added by Kurosawa that do not appear in Akutagawa's original short stories. The Kanins later went on to write the film screenplay for the Western "The Outrage", which also credits Akutagawa (but not Hashimoto). "The Outrage" was one of several Westerns based on Kurosawa's films, most notably John Sturges' "The Magnificent Seven", adapted from Kurosawa's historical epic "Seven Samurai" (1960) and Sergio Leone's ground-breaking "Spaghetti Western" "A Fistful of Dollars/Per un pugno di dollari" (1964). The Kanin's script was also staged on US television as a "Play of the Week" (1960).The LP has been autographed on the front cover by Rod Steiger and Claire Bloom.................CONDITION OF VINYL,COVER AND AUTOGRAPHS IS VG....................
