DescriptionMy Four Years in Germany (First National, 1918). One Sheet (27" X 41").
My Four Years in Germany marks the first time Jack and Sam Warner made a serious attempt at releasing a feature film. As such, it is considered the very first Warner Brothers film. Ostensibly, it concerned U.S. Ambassador to Germany James W. Gerard's account of his dealings with Kaiser Wilhelm II prior to World War I, but it quickly turned into a rousing propaganda film filled with scenes of outrageous German brutality and atrocity. Shot in New York, it was a major hit with the American public and led the Warner's to build a studio of their own in Hollywood. This unrestored poster has pinholes in the image area, edge wear on the left and right borders, tears in the center and top and bottom borders, a small piece of paper tape on the back, and a small chip on the top left corner. Fine/Very Fine.
Estimate: $600 - up.
