More Klaus Kinski pictures

I picked up some magazines with Kinski related articles in them, a couple of posters and a pack of lobby cards at the weekend.  Here’s a few bits and pieces to keep you happy until I can get around to doing another review or interview:

First of all, here’s a great poster that my lovely boyfriend bought for me.  It’s for the film The Dead Eyes of London, aka Die toten Augen von London (Dir Alfred Vohrer, 1961), one of the Edgar Wallace films that I really must get around to reviewing one day soon…

Next up, I got this amazing Film Comment magazine from November / December 1979 with a photo from Werner Herzog’s Nosferatu the Vampyre, aka Nosferatu: Phantom der Nacht (1979) on the cover.  If you can find a copy of this, do buy it – it’s got 14 pages of articles about Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski in it, including an interview with Werner Herzog.  The style of the magazine is a little pretentious but Mr Herzog puts the interviewer firmly in his place, “Well, your cross-reference as you make it, this is your own privilege… It may be hard to understand for you, but I don’t come from abstract ideas like Darwinistic concepts or any social comments…”  You tell him, Werner!

And the last thing – for now at least – is the lobby cards for The Little Drummer Girl (Dir George Roy Hill, 1984), which is a film I’ve not seen yet as the DVD is incredibly expensive and the subject matter of the film sounds so terribly “worthy”; sometimes the pretentious films are far more irritating than the trashy ones… But I will see it one day – I have to, Klaus is in it.   Many apologies for the wonky scans – I’m not much cop at scanning but I try my best.

About tinynoggin

I love films (anything from exploitation stuff to stylish Eastern European cinema, but I'm not really into blockbusters and modern Hollywood), music (Serge Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin, Michel Polnareff, Left Banke, Francoise Hardy, The Seeds, Love, The Zombies, etc) and books (Kurt Vonnegut, Julian Maclaren-Ross, Michel Houellebecq, Patrick Hamilton, Alan Sillitoe, and more). I take photographs with my Lomography Diana F plus or my Olympus Trip and like making stuff in my spare time.

    I understand your hesitation about the subject matter of The Little Drummer Girl, but rest assured it’s a superb story. If you want to be more prepared for the movie, read the novel first, which is by John le Carre.

      Thanks, Par! A friend bought the film for me as a present a couple of weeks ago – I must watch it when I get a moment. I usually end up enjoying something about Kinski films. The only one I had a lot of trouble with was The Soldier, which was really not my type of film at all and with Klaus in it for about one minute only there was very little to keep my attention…
