    Our Heroes on the Somme (Kinema R.T. Budapest, 1917). Hungarian Poster (36.75" X 49") Imre Foldes Artwork.
    It was one of the first propaganda films ever made, as well as a direct response by the Germans to the British film The Battle of the Somme, which had been released the prior year. The Germans feared they were losing the propaganda war when the British film was released, so they hurried this film into production using recreated battle scenes alongside actual footage in an effort to show the war from the German perspective. This movie would become a major step in the use of documentary footage seen in propaganda films. This original Hungarian poster for the movie features artwork even better than what is found in the original German advertisements, and has light touchup applied to the folds, small tears, and chips in the borders and outer background. Some of these issues may still be apparent. Unaddressed issues include some edge wear and a bit of writing in the lower left corner. Very Fine- on Linen.
