    Description

    Olympia (Tobis, 1938). Very Fine. German Lobby Card (9.5" X 12").
    Following her controversial propaganda effort, Triumph of the Will (1934), Leni Riefenstahl turned her considerable talents to documenting the 1936 Olympics, held in Berlin. This was the year that Jesse Owens astounded the world with his record-setting performance on the track, considered by many to be a serious blow to the Nazi concept of Aryan superiority. Despite its political overtones, this is an important film and a landmark in the history of documentary filmmaking. The scarce German lobby card offered here is a testament to Riefenstahl's talents as a cinematographer and has light edge wear, small corner bumps, a few minor surface blemishes, and faint smudges.
