Nikkatsu Trailer Theatre # 2:

By most accounts, Nikkatsu didn’t exactly give Seijun Suzuki’s giddy post-modern gangster romp ‘Youth of the Beast’ the big push it deserved back in 1963, but clearly that didn’t stop the studio’s trailer department going to town on it in their usual understated style.

Screengrabs and sub-titles are taken from the DVD accompanying Eureka’s recent, excellent UK blu-ray edition of the film. (Please please please do ‘Gate of Flesh’ next, if you’re reading Eureka folks.)
