About This Item

Vienna: Illustrierter Film-Kurier, 1931. Vintage Austrian program for the 1931 German film. Lang's first sound film, Peter Lorre's breakthrough role, and the film Lang considered to be his masterpiece-an assertion that has found much agreement since. The only second piece of ephemera from the film we have ever offered. Text in German.

Issue No. 262 of "Illustrierter Film-Kurier," one of the oldest European film magazines, which ran weekly from 1929 to 1956. Like its German counterpart, "Film-Kurier," each issue focused on a single film and used a gravure process to reproduce images from the film, making for striking images and design.

6 x 9 inches. Six pages, saddle stapled. Ink annotations throughout, seemingly regarding layout, affecting a bit of text but no images. Very Good plus with a faint horizontal crease and light toning to the wrappers.

Criterion Collection 30. Grant Germany. Godard, Histoires de cinema. Ebert I. Eureka Masters of Cinema 9. Rosebaum 1000.
