Vintage original 8 ½ x 11 ¼ 21 x 28 cm. Black-and-white double weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, Germany. Brigitte Helm, Alfred Abel, Gustav Frohlich, Rudolf Klein-Rogge, Fritz Rasp, Theodor Loos, Erwin Biswanger, dir: Fritz Lang, UFA. Superb originality highlighted this silent German-Expressionist film. The stunning special effects and design rival any of our state-of-the-art technical achievements of today. The story is set in the future where humans are divided into the two categories: thinkers and workers. Neither group understands the other, nor have a sense of fulfillment. A man, one of the thinkers, dares to venture into the land of the workers; from that time there is great uprising. This father of all science fiction films is presently enjoying a renewed interest. Its design elements continue to be influential to this day, and is considered the apex in silent cinema. A new restoration is bringing back many missing scenes and a new orchestral score, presented at live film festival performances. A magnificent original still showing the downtrodden workers in the underworld. UFA insignia at bottom right corner. Ink stamped on back for distribution in Paris A. This is an original German-produced still, as all stills for European release were made in the country of origin and distributed to the neighboring countries when the films played their initial release.
