Description

    Metropolis (UFA, 1927). German Postcard Set of 12 & Autographed Postcard (3.5" X 5.5").
    Fritz Lang's epic science fiction masterpiece was the most expensive film ever produced up to that time, and it shows. With grand sets and a magnificently designed robot, as well as a terrific story, the film set the standard by which all films of the genre still aim to meet. The postcards, offered in its complete set of 12, have never been offered, that we are aware of, in a compete set in auction before! The grand set showcases fantastic images of the massive sets, the iconic robot, and stars Brigitte Helm, Gustav Frohlich, Alfred Abel, and Heinrich George, and Rudolf Klein-Rogge. Also included is a postcard of Brigitte Helm, signed by the gorgeous actress. The autographed postcard and two postcards show some staining. A complete set of 12 is an incredible find, as usually small sets of two or three will be sold in auction when they do appear. Very Fine.
