    Description

    Dr. Mabuse, der Spieler - Ein Bild der Zeit (UFA, 1922). French Grande (63" X 47").
    Although this wasn't German director Fritz Lang's first film, it was certainly the film that solidified his reputation as one of Germany's most important filmmakers. The story (translated as "Dr. Mabuse, the Player- A Picture of the Time") was set in Berlin during the Weimar Republic and as the stock market grew, so did the plans of taking it over by Dr. Mabuse. He was a master criminal whose gang used their genius to hypnotize and swindle the wealthy out of inside information and ultimately their money. The film was long, running almost five hours, and was therefore released in two parts. The first half was released in April 1922 and the second portion in May 1922. This sublime French poster, a rare horizontal Grande affiche, with artwork by Maleta, is from the second portion of the film and is dated 1923, probably its first release in France. The poster had fold and crossfold wear with paper loss within the man's right eye and in his body. There were chips from the left and bottom border as well as from the border in all corners. The restoration work was very well done and the poster displays beautifully. Very Good/Fine on Linen.
