    The White Hell of Pitz Palu (Universal, 1929). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). There is perhaps no single person in the history of the movies more controversial than Leni Riefenstahl. An important pioneer in aesthetic filmmaking, Riefenstahl's films, including Triumph of the Will (1934) and Olympia (1936) are landmarks in the art of documentary cinema. Although tainted by her association with the Nazi party during World War II, Riefenstahl's importance to the development of the language of film cannot be denied. An accomplished actress as well, Riefenstahl stars in, rather than directs, this exciting film. In her memoir, Leni, Riefenstahl recounts, "We worked on this film for weeks at a temperature below minus thirty degrees centigrade and suffered serious frostbite." This beautiful lobby card, picturing Riefenstahl and co-star Ernst Petersen, had a pinhole in the bottom right, very light stains in the bottom left and right borders, a tear in the top left that extends into Petersen's head, pieces missing in the left border and in the top left, and a replaced top left corner. Professional restoration has addressed these issues, returning the card to a like-new appearance and making it a piece that you will certainly be proud to own. Fine-.
