RARE EXCELLENT ORIGINAL 1940 THIRD REICH PHOTO BOOK ON GERMAN MOVIES
WITH 270 PHOTOS AND ILLUSTRATIONS ON THE HISTORY OF THE GERMAN MOVIES FROM THE EARLY 1920s TO DR. JOSEPH GOEBBELS' UfA PROPAGANDA MOVIES!
This 6 x 8-1/2 inch, 340-page hardcover book was written by Rudolf Oertel and published 1940 by Wilhelm Frick Verlag in Wien (Vienna). The book is in near as-new condition, it has 270(!) photos and illustrations, making it one of the best Third Reich references for this subject. Dr. Joseph Goebbels, head of the Reichskulturkammer (RKK or Reich Chamber For Cultural Affairs) declared in 1934 that the National Socialist revolution will not be limitied to politics but will take place also in the economy and in the German culture, which means also the German film. In March 1938 the German Film Academy was founded to ensure the further evolution of cinematics in the spirit of National Socialism. The Nazis had the opinion that the motion-pic-tures became more and more a threat for the German people but thanks to the control of the Reichskulturkammer the German movies became an in-strument of education. Every script needed the approval of the RKK before it could become a movie. The book is also about documentary movies, two examples are the propaganda movies by Leni Riefenstahl (on the Reich Party Days and 1936 Olympic Games) and the "Deutsche Wochenschau", the weekly news which was shown in movie theaters throughout the nation.
A lot of interesting photos show the movie makers at work.
