Cat. #00151421112: BRIGITTE HELM

Uncommonly large-- in that almost all examples one encounters are postcard-sized-- 5x7-inch black and white portrait in her prime, boldly signed with her name alone in blue ballpoint pen in the 1980s. In good condition. Best remembered for her portrayal of Maria, the Maschinenmensch, in Fritz Lang's dystopian classic Metropolis (1927), lovely German silent and early talkie film star Brigitte Helm made several other contributions to the horror, sci-fi and fantasy genres, portraying Alraune ten Brinken in A Daughter of Destiny (1928) and Alraune (1930); Antinea in Georg Wilhelm Pabst's L'Atlantide (1932), Queen of Atlantis (1932) and The Lost Atlantis (1932); and Florence Wills in Gold (1934).
