Der verlorene Sohn


The Luis Trenker film DER VERLORENE SOHN (The lost Son, 1934) contrasts the grim breadlines and utter despair in Great Depression Manhattan (where parts of it were filmed) to the idyllic, bucolic farmlands and mountains of the Tirol, from where Trenker's film character emigrates to the USA in the hopes of a new better life. (He finally manages to return home after being penniless in America, and marries his childhood sweetheart.... a Happy Ending Third Reich-style.)


Here, from our Collection's 31 film stills, the grim reality of  a garbage can meal in Great Depression New York, as depicted in the film, in Roosevelt's America.



This poster sheet has no title or credits printed across it. It is blank, which meant that it was without doubt meant for export as is from Germany for use in an overseas market where the local distributor of the film could over–print the film title and credits in their local language for local consumption. The graphic artist is Geffers, who produced film poster imagery for Weimar Germany, the Third Reich, and the post–WWII German film market.
