    Description

    The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (UFA, 1919). German Lobby Card (9.25" X 11.75").
    This intense title is an erotic, murderous blend of romanticism, fantasy, and medieval fairy tale. Offered here is a vintage gelatin silver print, double weight original country-of-origin release German lobby card with a glossy finish. In the top right corner it features the Film Prufstelle, Berlin's original censorship stamp embossed in the surface. This amazing find has both Werner Krauss in the titular role of this landmark German Expressionist film and a murderous somnambulist in the cabinet, none other than Major Strassen from Casablanca (a young Conrad Veidt). There are pinholes in the corners, minor surface blemishes, and a small crinkle above the eyes of Krauss. On the verso is a printed title and penciled actor names. Very Fine.
