Rare Film Posters



Original British 30 inch x 40 inch Quad Poster for the 1967 Hans Conrad Fischer German Musical Documentary THE LIFE OF MOZART (DAS LEBEN MOZARTS).

This German film offers a nearly 2 1/2-hour selection of the music of Wolfgang Mozart (1756-1791). English narration provided by Hugh Burden recalls the events in the life of the gifted composer. From religious music and operas, to simple songs, chamber music and symphonies, a generous cross-section of Mozart’s work provides the novice listener with a good overview.

The poster art is by Peter Strausfeld. Strausfeld was interned in the Isle of Man at the Onchan Internment Camp during the War where he met the Austrian producer George Hoellering. In 1947 Hoellering opened the Academy Cinema on Oxford Street and invited Strausfeld to produce some posters for the cinema which he did in wood and lino-cuts till his death in 1980.

The poster is in very good folded condition.
