Product Details

Totentanz, released in America as "The Dance of Death". 
Anonymous
Circa 1920.

Measures approx. 54.5 x 40 inches

In this very early Fritz Lang script, Sascha Guru uses her feminine wiles to lure men to their deaths in a labyrinth beneath the house of her crippled, evil lover.

Academic note: This poster is erroneously credited to Josef Fenneker in numerous places across the internet.  Fenneker produced the poster for the Marmorhaus premiere in Berlin, and Theo Matejko created the poster for the Austrian release.  This poster is unsigned, and while elements of Fenneker are suggested, it is extremely unlikely that the hand that created this artwork was his.
