The Dance of Death t-shirt features artwork captured directly from the original 1919 silent film poster in the Century Guild museum collection. Discharge printed on 100% cotton for a super soft vintage look and feel, the t-shirt is tagless with the Century Guild emblem screened inside the collar.
The Dance of Death (Totentanz) was a silent film written by Fritz Lang years before he directed the legendary films Metropolis, Destiny, and M. It tells the story of a beautiful dancer (played by Sascha Gura) that was kept prisoner by a cruel, elderly man who forced her to lure men into a bizarre labyrinth beneath his eerie mansion. The film is sadly lost, and only the original posters for the film remain as artifacts to tell Fritz Lang and director Otto Rippert's terrifying story.
The artwork featured on our Dance of Death t-shirt was captured directly from the original 1919 poster in Century Guild's permanent collection- the only remaining original known to exist today- and as a result the design and finished garment are of the highest quality.
