Description

    UFA Exhibitor Book (UFA, 1925-26). Hard Cover German Exhibitor Book (9" X 12", 180 Pages).
    This UFA exhibitor book for 1925-26 is quite extraordinary. Included in its 180 pages are pages on F.W. Murnau's Faust, a three page spread on Fritz Lang's Metropolis, a two page spread on Lost World, Emil Jannings' Tartuffe and Variete, Lya de Putti's Manon Lescaut, Larry Semon films, six pages on Harold Lloyd's Why Worry, Girl Shy, and Hot Water, a Felix the Cat page, Gloria Swanson's Madame Sans-Gene, Rin-Tin-Tin, Pola Negri films, Lon Chaney's He Who Gets Slapped, Buster Keaton's The Navigator and Seven Chances, to just name a few. Also included at the back of the book is a 16" x 20" fold-out poster with photos of the seventeen top UFA directors (Murnau, Lang, Alexander Korda, etc). Other highlights: 16 different 5.5" X 7.5" star photos tipped in on backing boards covered in gold linen fabric frames, including Gloria Swanson, Lil Dagover, Mae Murray, Lya de Putti, and Pola Negri. The top German artists of the day did the illustrations. The outer fold out cover has some surface wear, the inner fold out gold leaf covers have some dust shadow and a bottom left corner bend, and the first page is coming loose from the binding. One of the hand-hewn bone clasps on the front cover is missing. All in all, a simply fascinating look back at German cinema history. Fine+.
