Description

    Sunrise (Fox, 1927). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    One of the most important directors in the history of German cinema, Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau is primarily remembered today for his landmark vampire film, Nosferatu (1922), an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula. After helming several important films in Germany - including Der Letzte Mann (1925) and Faust (1926), Murnau was lured to Hollywood by Fox Studios where, given an unprecedented amount of creative and artistic control, he made this movie. Although it received lavish critical acclaim - it won three Academy Awards, including a special Best Picture award for "artistic quality of production," and was hailed as "the most important picture in the history of movies" by playwright Robert Sherwood - it was a disappointment at the box office, causing Fox to take a firmer hand with Murnau in the future, and leading the director to break his contract with the studio in frustration. Nevertheless, this picture stands as a true classic, one of the most beautiful and artistic films ever brought to the screen. Offered here is a glorious embossed Lobby Card with artwork by Jochimsen. This artist did sets for The Big Trail, What Price Glory, and The Follies of 1929, and we are proud to offer cards from those sets in this auction as well. This very rare portrait card has marking in the bottom border, and some creasing in the left side and the top left corner, but is otherwise extremely clean and attractive. A truly great film, paper from this title is avidly sought after by collectors worldwide. Any devoted collector will be proud to own and display this rare treasure! Very Fine.

    The way you grouped lots, photographed, and presented the material was too notch. I was impressed that you took the time to attribute coins to the Krause reference as their "plate coin" and that many of your descriptions included pertinent facts and infor
