Vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Emil Jannings, Maly Delschaft, Max Hiller, Emilie Kurz, dir: F. W. Murnau; UFA. One of the greatest films of all time, the movie which truly defines the art of the silent film. The story was told almost entirely in visuals, with only the slightest use of title cards. This is the film for which the first dolly shot was invented as well. Certainly, Murnau was a genius at story telling with images. The story of an aging doorman at a prestigious hotel who takes great pride in his work but who is observed taking a deserved break on duty one day by his manager. He is demoted to the menial position of washroom attendant; stunned and humiliated, his life crumbles. In this portrait, Jannings displays the sadness his character feels because of his fate. The film played in the U.S. just two weeks after its German premiere. Pencil notations and Culver Pictures ink stamp on verso. Still labeled "38". NEAR FINE. Bookseller Inventory #
