This poster was made to promote the film entitled Iron Arm Pitcher, The Kazuhisa Inao Story, which was released on March 21, 1959. In 1958, Inao had just entered Japanese folklore by pitching in six of the seven 1958 Japan Series games, winning four. This followed a massive 374 innings pitched during the 1958 regular season during which he won 33 games, struck out 334 batters and had a 1.42 ERA! Inao starred in the film and his manager, HOFer Osamu Mihara, also played himself. Hall of Fame teammate Futoshi Nakanishi also appeared. The film was directed by Yoshiro Honda based on a screenplay by Hasuike Yoshioka. Produced by Toho films in monochrome Toho Scope!
