    Description

    Moon of Israel (UFA, 1924). Folded, Very Fine-. German Poster (37.5" X 55") Julius Kupfer-Sachs Artwork.
    Even during the silent era, Michael Curtiz displayed his excellent eye for cinematography long before he would become famous for his masterpieces Casablanca and The Adventures of Robin Hood. Knowing full well that his adaptation of H. Rider Haggard's fictional account of the Exodus would be in direct competition with Cecil B. DeMille's lavish The Ten Commandments, Curtiz pulled out all of the stops to make sure his smaller German studio could compete with Hollywood special effects. His efforts and spectacular collapse of the Red Sea proved his worth and caught the eye of Jack L. Warner, who would bring Curtiz's talents to the United States just two years later. Offered by Heritage for the first time, this beautiful stone litho poster has only light edge and fold wear, slight fold separations, very minor tears, and small corner bends. There are a few unobtrusive stains in the borders and some mild toning at the edges and folds. Folded, Very Fine-.


    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
