    Description

    The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (Goldwyn, 1920). CGC Graded Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Robert Wiene directs this brilliant German Expressionist classic which is one of the most influential films of all cinema. The story revolves around the darkly mysterious Dr. Caligari, played by Werner Krauss, who arrives in a small village with his mentalist show featuring somnambulist, or sleepwalker, Cesare (Conrad Veidt in heavy gothic make-up). Their arrival coincides with several murders, and one villager sets out to investigate and to save his love from death. What sets this film apart is the fantastic visual setting; a surreal world of oddly shaped buildings and streets created for the characters to move through which twists and turns along with the very original and surprising story line. The visionary creation of Wiene and designers Hermann Warm, Walter Reim, and Walter Rohrig, has influenced numerous film noir and horror directors through the last ninety years. Cards from this film are nearly impossible to come across, especially in such remarkable condition as this beauty, which shows only a dust shadow along the edges and one corner crease. This is a true, once-in-a-lifetime piece. From the Kirk Hammett Collection. CGC graded 6.5. Fine+.
