This poster for the film was produced in two sizes, both as a large "A0" format, like most Third Reich film posters (118.9 cm x 59.4 cm / 46.8 inches x 33.1 inches), as well as a smaller so-called 'Kleinplakat' in size A2 (59.2 cm x 42 cm / 23.4 inches x 16.5 inches).
The poster in our Collection is the latter (A2) size, with a Kreisfilmstelle banner glued across the bottom panel. The Kriesfilmstelle was the regional network of film distribution across Greater Germany overseen by the Gaufilmstelle organisation. As this poster has small pinholes in each of the four corners, it was certainly used as a cinema poster somewhere outside of the metropolitan areas.
We reproduce below the page from the cinema owners‘ promotion booklet ("Werberatschlag") for
, which shows all four A0-sized posters available from the Tobis film studio for use in cinemas at the time. We own in the A0 size both of the posters on the top row, which you can find in our Poster Gallery. We also reproduce the page announcing the availability of the 'Kleinplakat' of this poster, from the same publication.
is the only Third Reich propaganda film which we are aware of that had four full-sized A0 posters produced to promote it. The vast majority of films had two A0 posters printed by stone lithography until the middle of WWII when paper shortages reduced the number of A0 posters to one, or none. By 1942/43 many films had only an A1 poster available (such as our
Der 5. Juni
) and by 1944 there were important films released which actually had no poster at all (such as
