ONE ARABIAN NIGHT/SUMURUN (1920)
Vintage original 11 x 14″ (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. Ernst Lubitsch, Pola Negri, Paul Wegener, Jenny Hasselqvist, dir: Ernst Lubtisch; First National. A graphically stunning card for the American release of an early and now rare fantasy from the great Ernst Lubitsch. The film was released in Germany under the title SUMURUN. The film is well regarded for its costumes and sets, influenced by the Diaghelev Ballets Russes and the energetic performance of Pola Negri. Obviously outstanding is the fantasy-inspired art work for the films publicity campaign. There has been light touch up to one marginal stain, NEAR FINE.
