Original Hungarian 37 1/2 inch x 49 1/2 inch Poster for the 1917 Adolf Gartner German Drama DU SOLLST KEINE ANDEREN GOTTER HABEN (THOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER GODS) starring Albert Bassermann, Elsa Bassermann, Ewald Bruckner, Anni Burg and Wilhelm Diegelmann.
Albert Basserman was born in Mannheim, Germany in 1867. He studied chemistry but was drawn to the stage, working with the theatre of Max Reinhardt between 1909 and 1915. He made his film debut in the German film “Der Andere” (1913), a variation of the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story. He had achieved great prominence on the German stage and screen before being forced to flee the Nazi regime to Switzerland in 1933. In 1939 he arrived in Hollywood and played in a succession of character roles, typically as a wise, well-educated elderly European gentleman. He was nominated for an Academy Award for his supporting role in Hitchcock’s “Foreign Correspondent” (1940). In the late 1940s he returned to Europe. He died in an air crash over the Atlantic in 1952.
