Hanno rapito un uomo



This romantic comedy film is known in English as They've Kidnapped a Man and in Gemran as Ein Mann wird entführt.

This is an unusual DIFU poster insofar as it was printed for the Czech-speaking audience, without any German-language text. It is the only one in our small collection of DIFU posters that  does not have any German  text printed on it.

DIFU was the export film distributor sending films to Hitler Germany between 1936 and 1945.  This film dates from 1938 so for DIFU to be involved in sending a film with a Czech text poster, it must have been after the German occupation had begun. Although we do not know the release date in Czech lands, the German premiere was not until 1 August 1939.

The film is about a marriage between a Russian princess and a movie star, arranged for convenience, which turns into the real thing.
