Misono Kyohei, the Japanese film historian and collector, died yesterday 
at the age of 80.  Misono, who was author of the book _Katsuben jidai_, 
was also the author and publisher of a lot of privately published books 
that showed off his collection of rare posters and stills. His tastes 
focused on the silent jidaigeki film stars like Arashi Kanjuro, but he 
also produced important reference materials for those studying the prewar 

It'll be interesting to see where his valuable collection ends up.
