Raizo and Nobunaga

There is a hidden gem which Ichikawa Raizo plays the role of Nobunaga in a film, Wakaki Hi no Nobunaga.  It was made in 1959, the same year as Nakamura Kinnosuke's Nobunaga film, Lucky Adventurer Nobunaga.  Now I have several copies of Kinnosuke's Nobunaga films.  However, I do not own Raizo's film.  I am desperate to get my hands on this flick since what I have been told, it is one of the better Nobunaga films made.  The film was probably made from this kabuki play:

Nobunaga no tame!
