Rare KARL RITTER original autographed photograph from 1942
The original autographs of film director Karl Ritter (1888–1977) are exceedingly rare. This is one of only two which the William Gillespie Collection has found and purchased in two decades. This one is standard postcard size, with blue fountain pen dedication and signature, dated 1942.
Included in the price is an original copy of the "Aktuelle Fiimbücher" pamphlet Karl Ritter, written by Kurt Höllger and published in 1940 in Berlin. It is 42 pages long with over 20 B&W photos in it, written in German. The same photo was used as the front cover photo image for the pamphlet, as you can see, and is a nice complementary collection piece.
