Die Nibelungen: Siegried and Kriemhild's Revenge

Fritz Lang (director)
Thea von Harbou (screenwriter)
Gertrud Arnold, Margarete Schon (starring)

Berlin: Film-Kurier, 1924. Original German programs for duology "Die Nibelungen," one each for "Die Nibelungen: Siegfried" and "Die Nibelungen: Kriemhild's Revenge." Based on the thirteenth century epic poem "Nibelungenlied." Text in German.

Film-Kurier was the first German film journal, published daily beginning in 1919. Film-Kurier's classic era lasted until 1933, when its publisher, Alfred Weiner, had to flee Germany because of his Jewish origins. The issues from this era remain striking to this day because they were printed using a gravure reproduction process. Each day's issue would focus on a single film.

9 x 11.75 inches. Each program six pages, folded loose leaves as issued. Very Good plus, with a horizontal fold, tiny pinholes to the corners, and an occasional short closed tear.

Masters of Cinema 46.
