Description

    Diary of a Lost Girl (Pabst Film, 1930). Yugoslavian Poster (24.5" X 37.5").
    Diary of a Lost Girl is the famous German film directed by G. W. Pabst and starring the inimitable Louise Brooks. Certainly the large 1929 Austrian poster, the only copy known, which is so beautifully featured in the book Starstruck by Ira Resnick, has remained to this day one of the most sought after images on this title. This amazing find is from the first showing in the newly formed Yugoslavia, in 1930. It is a redrawing of the Austrian artwork with even more force and suggestiveness than the source poster. With its image of a partially clad Louise Brooks, the poster is at once, eroticism in its true form, and a timeless theatrical image. This may be the only known copy of this poster. It has had restoration only in the foldlines for some fold separations and minor center-point and left foldline loss of paper. There was some edge wear on the right border. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
