Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse (released in the U.S. in 1943 as "The Last Will of Doctor Mabuse", and "The Testament of Doctor Mabuse"), the classic 1933 Fritz Lang German crime mad criminal genius detective thriller (a very complicated story of a criminal mastermind who runs a huge operation from his room in a mental hospital, and the detective trying to break up his crime syndicate; there are some who think that Lang intended his central character to be a parody of Hitler, and obviously, Hitler took offense at this parallel, because he had the movie banned!; the movie is a sequel of sorts to Lang's 5 hour silent movie "Dr. Mabuse", which is sometimes shown in two parts; some people consider this movie to be Lang's very best movie, amazing since he also did "Metropolis" and "M"!) starring Rudolf Klein-Rogge (in the title role as Dr. Mabuse), Oscar Beregi Sr., Thomy Bourdelle, Raymond Cordy, Gustav Diessl, Ginette Gaubert, Wera Liessem, Theodor Loos, Maurice Maillot, Karl Meixner, Daniel Mendaille, Camilla Spira, and Monique Rolland. This movie is unusual in that Fritz Lang shot two versions of the movie at the same time! In addition to the regular German language version, Lang made a second French language version. In that movie, Rudolf Klein-Rogge played Dr Mabuse as well as in the German version, but the rest of the cast was entirely different. This was done by many of the major studios in the very early 1930s, where they would have a second cast film a second version of the movie on the same sets (which saved a lot of money), but in all the other cases we know of, a second director was called in to shoot the second version. In this case, Lang directed both versions (although Rene Sti was the co-director of the French version). Note that, shortly before it was to be released, this film was banned in Germany by Joseph Goebbels (Nazi politician and Reich Minister of Propaganda) because it "showed that an extremely dedicated group of people are perfectly capable of overthrowing any state with violence". It finally had a German (West) release in 1951.

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this poster was folded at one time but has been laying flat for a long time and will be sent rolled in a tube.

Condition: very good to fine. The poster was folded at one time, but it has been laying flat for so long that the foldlines are virtually invisible. There are pinholes in each corner with a tear in the bottom right corner caused by rough removal of the pins. There are some creases and faint brown dot water stains in the upper right blank border. Other than the above, the poster is in nice condition!
