Ingmar Bergman's ANSIKTET [THE MAGICIAN] (1958) $3,750.00 SOLD

Vintage original 39 x 27;" (100 x 70 cm.) one sheet poster, Sweden. Max von Sydow, Ingrid Thulin, dir: Ingmar Bergman; Svensk Filmindustri. An extremely rare Swedish poster for this early Swedish film classic by Bergman -- a semi-horror film (about a charlatan magician who may or may not have any true powers) which had an enormous impact when released in the US and UK soon after its Swedish debut (I personally saw it as a kid, and it scared the hell out of me when I first saw it!).

The original Swedish title translates as "The Face", and it was...

Ingmar Bergman's GYCKLARNAS AFTON [SAWDUST AND TINSEL] (1953) $2,500.00 SOLD

Vintage original 27 x 39" (70 x 100 cm.) poster, Sweden. Harriet Andersson, Hasse Ekman, dir: Ingmar Bergman; Svensk Filmindustri. Originally released in the U.S. under the title The Naked Night, this searing film is about a small traveling circus in rural Sweden in the early twentieth century. Ekman's anguished performance as the aging owner of the circus clearly channels Emil Jannings' work in various German expressionist silent films, among them Dupont's Variety. Harriet Andersson, in the central role of Ekman's young and rather steely mistress, clearly anticipates the powerful women's' roles which will emerge in later Bergman films.

This is...

Vintage original 27 x 38" (70 x 98 cm.) poster, Sweden. Lon Chaney, Loretta Young, Nils Asther, Gwen Lee, dir: Herbert Brenon, MGM.

Perhaps his finest film performance, he also guided 14-year-old Loretta Young in her first featured role. One of the finest silent films, based on story by David Belasco.

This poster by the artists of Sweden is spectacular with its circus theme, colors and deco presentation. On linen, NEAR FINE.

Vintage original 35 x 24" (89 x 61 cm.) poster, Sweden. Jane Gail, Matt Moore, dir: George Loane Tucker; Universal.
