Verraeter (Verräter)


 A behind-the-scenes photograph of the filming of Verräter, from our collection. Director Karl Ritter is in the chair partially under the 35mm camera, wearing the visor cap and studying the scene.




Actor Herbert A.E: Böhme plays the role of the spy who tries to steal the German aircraft for the British. Here is an original sketch drawn of the actor in his pilot film costume during the film-shoot in 1936 of Karl Ritter's VERRÄTER (TRAITORS), signed by the sketch artist, Fritz Meisel (for the Berlin newspaper BZ am Montag) and also then autographed by Herr Böhme. An original sketch found in our Collection. The white blemishes are touch–up spots used to prepare this original sketch for publication in the newspaper. At the right, Böhme in the film without his pilot costume.


This original sketch was reprinted in the film's Feuilleton press–book, also in our Collection:




The actor Herbert A.E. Böhme in the film:



Böhme also played the lead role of a modern day Robinson Crusoe in the 1937 Arnold Fanck film Ein Robinson, filmed off the Chilean coast on a remote island where survivors of the sunk WWI Kriegsmarine ship Dresden were interned by Chile until the war ended.
