Description

    Olympia (Tobis, 1938). German Lobby Card (9.5" X 11.75").
    The controversial German director and producer Leni Riefenstahl became internationally known for her work on Hitler's propaganda films including the infamous Triumph of the Will. In 1936, she was asked by Hitler to document the Summer Olympics, resulting in this landmark film. It took her nearly two years to edit, and it is notable for several technical innovations, including the use of tracking shots. However, after the fall of the Nazis, her associations with, and tacit approval of Hitler and Goebbels led to her being banned from filming for many years. This iconic image is from Part 1 of her documentary. There are pinholes in the borders, and the bottom edge has been minimally trimmed. A unique and historically important image, do not miss out on this rare item. Very Fine+.
