About the Item

Original vintage movie poster for the Soviet release of a 1924 German silent film Der Letzte Mann (The Last Man) The Last Laugh about an aging doorman of a prestigious hotel who is demoted to a washroom attendant, starring the popular 1920s actor Emil Jannings (1884-1950) and directed by one of the leading German film directors of the time F. W. Murnau (Friedrich Wilhelm Plumpe; 1888-1931) with the renowned scriptwriter Carl Mayer (1894-1944), using only one title card and ingenious mobile filming techniques through city streets and corridors with cameras mounted on bicycles and using overhead wires invented by the notable cinematographer Karl Freund (1890-1969), who also strapped a camera to his waist as he stumbled on roller skates to depict a drunk scene; the overall effect of movement, light and shadows earned Murnau the nickname "Great Impressionist". Constructivist design by the notable Soviet artists the Stenberg Brothers (Vladimir 1899-1982; Georgii 1900-1933) and Yakov Ruklevsky (1884-1965) featuring an elderly doorman with a moustache wearing a smart blue uniform and saluting with a hand to his hat against a colourful striped background with two silhouettes walking away in the background, the stylised title text above and the rest of the text with the logo below. Large size. Good condition, original folds, restored minor tears and folds, restored minor loss on margins, backed on linen.
