Shown immediately below is the original Tobis Filmkunst German original poster, in the German language, which is not in the Collection; and underneath it is our extremely rare original Czechoslovak language poster from the same year (1938).



 The 1986  book by Cooper C. Graham Leni Riefenstahl & Olympia states on page 197:

It is significant that Olympia was not released in Czechoslovakia in 1938. As far as this writer knows, it was the only country in Europe that did not receive the film. German films were still received regularly in Prague, and it is not known whether the Germans withheld the film, or whether the Czechs did not allow the film to run.

Thus, our two Czech language film posters for Olympia, printed in Prague by Tobis Filmkunst using the original German film studio graphic designs were never used. They are exceedingly rare and Leni Riefenstahl’s husband Horst Kettner offered to buy them from us in 2008 because they did not exist in her own private Olympia archive.


During the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin, the Ufa movie theaters were running new feature films such as Louis Trenker's Der Kaiser von Kalifornien and Leni Riefenstahl's feature–length documentary film, Triumph des Willens.
