Our first acquisition is this 1944 film advertisement for the premiere of the film  Junge Adler  at the prestigious Ufa cinema palace in Prague.

No film poster of Junge Adler was printed –– this confirmed by the Ufa handbill which you can find in our Poster Gallery under the film title -- but we do have 27 lobby cards and 5 press photos, as well as the film's press-book in our Collection, all of which we have scanned and made available to International Historic  Films in Chicago for their forthcoming 2020 DVD release; which will be remastered from an original 35mm print for top quality.

This piece of ephemera relates to the film Das Gewehr über!  It is a small handbill which folded in half represents a soldier at his watch post, then opens up to a description and advertisement for the film.  Die-cut film advertising was not as common in the war years as previously.

We have acquired three original press photos of the "crimes against humanity"  trial of Veit Harlan in Hamburg, 1949, for his Jud Süß. The first photo is inside the court room, the second photo inside the Esplanade-Cinema in Hamburg where the court screened both Harlan's Jud Süß as well as Hippler's Der ewige Jude films for the judges and trial participants and observers;  and the third photo shows him and well–wishers celebrating his acquittal, including hoisting him on their shoulders outside the court house. Very rare historically important originals!

News Flash! The second photo described above is under consideration to be book cover illustration of a new English–language book on Veit Harlan currently being written. The author of the book has been in touch with us as to this development, once the photo was known to him.

We have acquired 29 double-weight cinema lobby cards (ca. 23 x 29 cm) 979_001.jpgfor the OKW's documentary film  Sieg im Westen. Photographs from this film do not surface very often and are sought-after by not only Third Reich film collectors, but by WWII militaria collectors as well. The image RIGHT is a poor photograph of the photograph from the auction listing. With the seven lobby cards  which are already in our Collection, we will have 36 from this important film, as well as the ultra–rare, perhaps only surviving Gaufilmstelle poster in the world. The poster was drawn by graphic artist Mjölnir, who also designed one of the infamous Der ewige Jude posters in our Collection. We thus have both of Mjölnir's film posters. He did no others, but is famous for his many NSDAP and wartime propaganda posters, including those at war's end for the Volksturm.

This very scarce Ross card for Olympia shows film director Leni Riefenstahl in a pose during the film–shoot. This card is a variation to her  better-known portrait cards issued for the film at the time; which we also have in our card collection. We are pleased to have found it.

This cinema pass was issued to German soldiers during their visit to Venice, 3232.jpgItaly during WWII. It offers the soldiers free admission to any one of six movie theatres in Venice, as guests of the Italian Fascist Party in partnership with the "Strength through Joy" travel and hospitality organisation of the Third Reich operated by the Reich Labor Service. This rarely–seen  movie pass now part of our collection of German film ephemera.
