An Original Vintage Theatrical German Movie Herald (measures 5 3/4" x 8 1/4" [15 x 21 cm]; 4 pages) (Learn More)

Unternehmen Michael (released in English-speaking countries as "The Private's Job"), the 1937 Karl Ritter German World War I (WWI) melodrama starring Heinrich George, Paul Otto, Mathias Wieman, Ernst Karchow, Willy Birgel, and Hannes Stelzer. Note that this is a "forbidden" movie. This refers to around 60 movies that were made in Germany between 1933 and 1945, during the time the Nazis were in power in Germany. These movies are considered to be propaganda movies, which glorify the Nazi regime and their ideals. Immediately after World War II, a list of over 100 movies that were made between 1933 and 1945 was created, and those movies were not allowed to be shown at any time in Germany or Austria. Over the next decade, around 60 of those movies (including this one) were taken off the list so that they are allowed to be shown (but rarely are), and those movies are known as "forbidden movies", because even though they can now be shown, they could not be shown at all in the years right after World War II. The remaining 40 or so movies are known as "conditional" movies, because they are still not allowed to be shown in Germany or Austria, even in the present day, with the sole exception being when they are shown in an educational context, like at a university, and a speaker talks before and after the movie. All of the "forbidden" movies and "conditional" movies glorify Nazism in some respect, or they were created by directors or featured actors who were prominently associated with the Nazi party.

Important Added Info: Note that this is an incredibly rare German herald from World War II or earlier. Virtually none of these heralds survive from any movie, surely because of Germany's massive paper shortages during World War II! Also note that this is a "country of origin" item for this German movie! Also note that this German herald measures 5 3/4" x 8 1/4" [15 x 21 cm]. Finally, note this herald was folded in half at one time as was originally intended.

Condition: very good.
