    Description

    M (Nero-Film AG, 1931). German Poster (37.5" X 56").
    One of the finest, and most important films to come out of Germany, this is the story of a deranged child murderer (Peter Lorre) whose crimes are so heinous that he is hunted both by the police and the criminal underground. Directed by Fritz Lang, this film reflects the real-life crimes of Peter Kürten, a child killer who was on the loose in Dusseldorf at the time this picture was made. A truly chilling film, it made an instant star out of Lorre, who previously had specialized in comic roles. Many consider this to be the high point of Lorre's career, and see this as an important precursor to the film noir genre that Lang would help inaugurate once he emigrated to America in 1934. This country-of-origin stone litho poster is quite rare. The borders have been airbrushed, and touchup has been applied to scattered pinholes, slight fold wear with small chips, and creases and misfolds. The poster now displays admirably, and is an excellent find for serious collectors. Fine+ on Linen.
