    Description

    The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (Goldwyn, 1921). Very Fine-. Oversized Photo (11" X 14").
    Cesare the Somnambulist (Conrad Veidt) carries Jane Olsen (Lil Dagover) through the surreal scenery of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari in this dark and moody photo. Director Robert Wiene's masterpiece of German Expressionist cinema has influenced countless filmmakers in the century since its first release, and it is often cited by critics and film scholars as the first true horror movie. This oversized vintage silver gelatin, single weight, matte finish photo is a wonderful representation of the tone of Wiene's extraordinary film. The has chips in this three of its corners, a few mild creases, and minute tears. There are some subtle scuffs in the image, and there are faint smudges mostly in the borders. There are also remnants of a bit of faint graphite writing in the bottom border. The verso of the photo has some information written in pencil along with a couple of ink stamps and remnants from two stickers.
