Description

    The White Hell of Pitz Palu (Universal, 1929). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    A spectacular adventure unfolds on the mountain of Pitz Palu as an expedition is launched to locate a missing climber. G.W. Pabst and Arnold Fanck created a film that is renown for showcasing some of the finest cinematography ever shot on a mountain face. The picture also stars Leni Riefenstahl who made a number of "mountain adventures" before she retired from acting and became one of the most important directors during Nazi era Germany. The film was shot and released in Germany in 1929 as a silent picture and when Universal picked it up for distribution in the United States, they hired NBC commentator Graham McNamee to do the film's narration. McNamee was the first radio announcer to achieve international celebrity status and would later go on to narrate Universal's newsreels. The poster, which features a handsome portrait of the legendary commentator, is exceptionally rare. Prior to expert restoration the poster had two tears, each in the middle of the left and right side that went into the art. There were some smaller tears around the edges as well. The bottom three inches of the poster were missing, which is from near the top of McNamee's name down, though the top half inch of the name was still present, and that area has been recreated with the use of an image from a pressbook. Very Good+ on Linen.
