Vienna: Illustrierter Film-Kurier, 1931. Vintage Austrian program for the 1931 German film. Lang's first sound film, Peter Lorre's breakthrough role, and the film Lang considered to be his masterpiece—an assertion that has found much agreement since. The only second piece of ephemera from the film we have ever offered. Text in German.

Issue No. 262 of "Illustrierter Film-Kurier," one of the oldest European film magazines, which ran weekly from 1929 to 1956. Like its German counterpart, "Film-Kurier," each issue focused on a single film and used a gravure process to reproduce images from the film, making for striking images and design.

6 x 9 inches. Six pages, saddle stapled. Ink annotations throughout, seemingly regarding layout, affecting a bit of text but no images. Very Good plus with a faint horizontal crease and light toning to the wrappers.

Criterion Collection 30. Grant Germany. Godard, Histoires de cinema. Ebert I. Eureka Masters of Cinema 9. Rosebaum 1000.
