"SA MANN BRAND" rare 1934 Manhattan cinema ticket
This is an extremely rare cinema ticket, valid for any one of the five scheduled screenings of the NSDAP Sturmabteilung feature film,
SA MANN BRAND,
for 29 May 1934 at the Yorkville Theatre in Manhattan's main German immigrant neighbourhood.
The review of the film by
The New York Times
May 28, 1934 The New York Times
The first outspoken Nazi propaganda film has arrived in New York carrying the title "S. A. Mann Brand" ("Storm Trooper Brand"). It is being shown at the Yorkville Theatre and its "plot" is so simple that even persons understanding no German have no difficulty in following the adventures of the young truck driver (Herr Klingenberg), who is supposed to epitomize in his likable person the hopeful, fighting spirit of the millions of young Germans rallied to the standard of Adolf Hitler.In contradistinction to the later Nazi picture "Hans Westmar," which had its first public showing in December, "S. A. Mann Brand," dated June, 1933, has no anti-Semitic bias, but concentrates its animus upon the German Communists and their Moscow guides. Just as the earlier Soviet Russian motion pictures painted their enemies all black, so this Nazi effort represents the Reds as the vilest of the vile. Even the Communist girl (Vera Liessem), who is in love with the hero and who helps him double-cross the "Moscow agent" (Max Weydner) is treated none too gently by the director, although in the end, after the Hitler victory at the polls on March 5, 1933, the spectators may guess that she has been converted to the "true faith."Perhaps because the "coordination" and "liquidation" of the anti-Nazi elements in Germany had not been completed when this film was turned out, the Social Democratic father (Otto Wernicke) of Brand is depicted as not such a bad type, although deluded by Marxism, and he, too, finally votes for Hitler. Naturally, the "Soviet agent" is placed under arrest and the audience may imagine what is going to happen to him.From the technical standpoint "S. A. Mann Brand" is one of the best pictures made in Germany. Although most of the actors are unknown to frequenters of German cinema houses here, their work is uniformly excellent. Many of the scenes are really thrilling.
A Nazi Film.
