This is an original Japanese poster printed in 1972 for the first release of Legend of Dinosaurs & Monster Birds.
Legend of Dinosaurs & Monster Birds (恐竜・怪鳥の伝説, Kyōryū Kaichō no Densetsu, lit. Legend of Dinosaurs and Ominous Birds), also known in the U.S. as The "Legend of Dinosaurs", is a 1977 Japanese science fiction film produced and distributed by Toei Company.
Inspiration for the film came from Toei’s president Shigeru Okada in 1974. After serving as head of Japanese delegations at overseas film festivals and trade fairs, he formed business relationships with executives of Western-style distribution companies. Studying the styles of Western filmmaking, he ordered a screening of Jaws at the Toei Studios. Okada determined that American film trends would gain popularity in Japan, and that Japanese filmmaking should adopt those trends. Based on the success of Jaws, he determined that similar “monster movie” films would be successful.
