    Woman in the Moon (UFA, 1929). French Lobby Card (10.5" X 13.75").
    The word "visionary" is often overused, but it is perfectly applicable in the case of genius film-maker Fritz Lang. This legendary film-maker, responsible for such German classics as Dr. Mabuse der Spieler (1922), Die Nibelungen (1924), and, of course, Metropolis (1927), created a landmark science fiction epic in this picture, which marks the first appearance anywhere of a backwards countdown to take-off, and correctly anticipates such later developments as liquid rocket fuel, zero gravity, and a multi-stage rocket. In a story that may be apocryphal, when the Nazis began developing rocket technology, they were afraid that this film came too close to the truth, so they had all the models destroyed and the movie itself suppressed. As with all of Lang's classic films, paper from the original release is very hard to find. Offered here is a lovely French lobby card, showing a group of explorers on the moon, prospecting for gold. It has staple holes in the right and left borders, pinholes in the corners, and corner bumps, but remains a very attractive and displayable piece. This is one you won't want to pass up. Fine/Very Fine.
