A0 size (33x46 inches) for The Rocketeer (1991) using the same John Mattos artwork as was used on the US material.

Nice poster, Nick. Looks to be in good shape, too.

Is that the artist's signature on the lower left?

Well it's in considerable better shape than I am!

Indeed it is the artists signature. A German double act called Kienast and Klotz. Rather catchy I think. A good runner up to Bialystock and Bloom!

Thanks old chap! As of late I seem to have devoted an annoying amount of time to being ill. Must be my age. However, I shall endeavour to pop in from time to time...

One of my favourite Bogie posters. Art BY Fisher. East Germany 1st release. I need to frame it.


West-Germany, not East Germany. 60s re-release...

From the look and design of this poster, I wondered if it was actually East German, let alone a first release.

Thanks for setting the record straight, Mike.  cheers

I'd rather have the super-rare 1st release by Hans-Otto Wendt:

That's a really awesome looking poster, Mike.

What year was the first release in Germany?

Large German poster for the the great actor Conrad Veidt's Rasputin from 1932.  Just how large is this poster?  Check it out next to the one sheet for One Million B.C.(not a German poster, though Lon Chaney Jr., who is also in the film, had a pet German Shepherd once of which he was very fond). Hey, is Rasputin checking out Carole Landis?!  Two actors that died much too young.

Beautiful Rasputin, okie.  bed1

If that is this same copy, it was one I was watching during the Sig Auction in Nov.

Hi erik1925!

Yes, it is!  I was shocked to win the bid as it is unfolded, unbacked, and stunning.  I really like Conrad Veidt's work as well.  Thanks for letting me know you like it as well!  Okie

I very much enjoy Veidt's work as well... both his silents and sound flickers.

The Man Who Laughs is brilliant, imho.

Yes, The Man Who Laughs is perfection for Veidt!  There was a great print on YouTube.  Do you think it's in the public domain?

RASPUTIN SIZE:
The German Din A1 format (23x33 inch or 59 x 84cm) was used by German distributors after WWII ended, approx. 1946/47.
Before that, rom the 20s until the 40s, German posters had been much bigger! About the size of Italian 2-foglio posters: 140cm x 96cm. And on thick paper stock too, so they are very often in much better condition than stuff from Italy, France or Spain...

Thanks, Peckinpah! I didn't know about the paper stock difference between years. I've often wondered how many pre-war German posters survived? Also, how do you like the Rasputin poster itself? Okie

Not many survived. That also goes for the early post-war years, 1946-1950... Out of my 5000+ pre-1970 posters I maybe had (ever) about 20 German pre-1940 posters. I like them of course :). And that very thick paper stock is great and the reason why those who did survive, still are in great condition...

I will post a few here from time to time since not everybody checks out the POSTER ARTISTS & DESIGNER topic
where I upload a lot of German 50s / 60s paper.

However, I will always add the poster artist here, so in case there is any interest, you
can check him and his work out in "his" POSTER ARTISTS & DESIGNER topic...
(so far I added there: WENDT / REHAK / DILL / PELTZER / GOETZE / LITTER / MEERWALD /
BRAUN / BONNE / BOTJAGIN / DEGEN  SCHUBERT / WILLIAMS).

I start with five of my favorite posters by my favorite artist, HANS - OTTO WENDT
(3x DinA1, DinA0 quer + REBEL, scarce German A0 quer, 119x59cm)

Wendt's detail, especially when painting skin, is excitingly vivid!  Beautiful images of Taka, Monroe,  Olivier, Dean, Flynn, Wood, and Brando.  Thanks, Peckinpah.  Okie

My current avatar is the original German Rasputin 1932 movie poster starring the great Conrad Veidt. On IMDB, today is the listed release date in Germany of February 19, 1932 (87 years ago).  According to IMDB, this date was based on the delivery of the German censorship certificate.  Interestingly, I took the below picture of the Weimar stamp on the poster and the date is February 11, 1932.  I'm hoping our great German poster expert, Peckinpah, will please provide some insight perhaps on the difference in the two dates.  Is the poster stamp approving only the poster image for release?  Should the poster stamp be the same as the date on the censorship certificate?  Thanks for any help with these questions!  Or, am I not asking the right question? Okie
