About This Item

Prague: Elektafilm, 1940. Collection of 44 vintage oversize, double weight photographs from the 1940 film, based on the 1897 novel by Vilem Mrstik. The photographs have been tipped into a contemporary photo album with a title page executed in holograph paint, and tissue paper between each page. The sweet and shy Helen, daughter of a game warden, lives with her father in a hunting lodge in the beautiful Moravian countryside. She meets a worldly, ambitious young man who is studying law in Prague, and in the course of their romance she becomes less innocent and he less cynical. Filmed once prior to this adaptation, in 1926 by Karl Anton, under the auspices of the company Elektajournal, which in 1933 became Elektafilm in the wake of its international success with Gustav Machaty's "Ecstasy". Shot on location in and around the city of Dobris in the Central Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic. Photographs 11 x 9 inches. Near Fine. Photo album 15 x 11 inches, bound with a string binding. Fraying to the edges, else Near Fine.
