A bunch of Klaus Kinski photos and posters

I spent a small fortune at the weekend picking up a few more Klaus Kinski bits and pieces.  I think I’ve now got 97 films (which means I need to get more reviews done as soon as possible!) and my collection of photos, posters and books is increasing rapidly too.

Here’s a few things I found this weekend:

Klaus Kinski and Alain Delon in Mort d’un pourri (dir Georges Lautner, 1977), which I just recently found with English subs (although I’ve not even watched it yet!).

Here’s Klaus playing with a toy bird and looking slightly demented whilst he’s at it!

Klaus looking a bit moody in his lovely brown leather coat!Klaus in Cobra Verde (dir Werner Herzog, 1987)

That wonderful image of Klaus in the rather brilliant Crawlspace (dir David Schmoeller, 1986)

Klaus with Max 404 in Android (dir Aaron Lipstadt, 1982), which I really must get reviewed soon.  A very enjoyable film.

I love this image of Klaus with Eddi Arent and Anthony Newlands on set of Circus of Fear (dir John Llewellyn Moxey, 1966).  Sorry about the streaky patches on the scan!  I need to add to my review of Circus of Fear as I now have the Blue Underground restored full length version of the film; so much to do to get all these films reviewed…

Klaus in the artwork for La mano che nutre la morte (dir Sergio Garrone, 1974), which is another one for reviewing…

Klaus Kinski in a Hamlet moment, for some reason or other flicking the V!

Klaus looking nice and hot in For a Few Dollars More (dir Sergio Leone, 1965).

Klaus looking world-weary in the wonderful Fruits of Passion (dir Shuji Terayama, 1981) – this is one I started reviewing a little while ago but it needs some serious attention as, for once, there is actually something interesting to say about this film, which can’t be said for the vast majority of Klaus’ films unfortunately.  However enjoyable they are.

You know me, I like Klaus.  I also like men who wear glasses.  Klaus in glasses – yum yum.  This is Klaus with Heinz Drache in Der Rächer (dir Karl Anton, 1960), which I don’t yet have in my collection – must find it soon…

Klaus in the Jack the Ripper (dir Jess Franco, 1976) artwork.  Thank goodness, this is one I have already reviewed on here!

Klaus in Jesus Christus Erlöser (dir Peter Geyer, 2008).  All together now: “Ich will dir nachfolgen, wohin du auch gehst!”

Colour and b/w Nosferatu the Vampyre (dir Werner Herzog, 1979).

A fabulous image of Klaus in Nosferatu a Venezia (dir Klaus Kinski, Augusto Caminito, Luigi Cozzi, Mario Caiano, Maurizio Lucidi, 1988).  Whatever anyone else thinks of this film, I think it’s fabulous – and, o no, I need to review this one as well…

Do I spend most of my time defending Klaus’ films?  I will definitely defend this one, I love Kinski Paganini (dir Klaus Kinski, 1989) and yah boo sucks to Werner Herzog and anyone else who said it would never work!

Klaus looking very handsome.

Klaus Kinski and Stéphane Audran in Pill of Death (dir Jean Delannoy, 1970), the film with many, many names.  I think I may have reviewed it on here under the title Only the Cool, but I can’t swear to it!

Only Klaus could play a gay guy in a film and get a scene where he’s lying naked with a big breasted woman and sucking his thumb! Klaus in the fabulous L’important c’est d’aimer (dir Andrzej Zulawski, 1975), which also needs to be reviewed…

After seeing this image of Klaus, I really wanted to see him in Nella stretta morsa del ragno (dir Antonio Margheriti, 1971).  Not enough Klaus in the film for my liking but he does look rather wonderful as Edgar Allen Poe.  This posting of so many images is just reminding me how many films I have yet to review – will my work here ever be done?!!

No Klaus images here, but some information about Our Man in Marrakesh (dir Don Sharp, 1966) in which he makes a short but sweet appearance.

Another The Little Drummer Girl (dir George Roy Hill, 1984) poster to add to my collection!  I love that this one says Diane Keaton in big letters and yet it has a bigger picture of Klaus on it.  I must watch the film some time…

Look at Klaus’ face in this Code Name: Wild Geese (dir Antonio Margheriti, 1984) poster!

And finally, a lovely little Fitzcarraldo (dir Werner Herzog, 1982) poster to add to the Klausy collection.

That’s all for today, and I haven’t forgotten that I’m supposed to be writing up the Love and Money full film review.  That’s in case any of you are actually waiting for it after the recent photo story posting!

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.

  1. I’m with you on Paganini and Nosferatu a Venezia—the latter which I’m due to revisit. You blew my mind with Mort d’un pourri, as I was completely unfamiliar with it. I need to see Delon and Kinski together ASAP. Hope it’s good.

    Looking forward to more posts.

      Thanks for the feedback, David. I’ll let you know if Mort d’un pourri is any good but I flicked throuh quickly and Klaus looks fabulous in a smart suit in one scene! I think there is plenty of hands-in-pockets action for me :0)

  2. Konrad Kuklinsky says:

    the two b/w-pics, where he looks “slightly demented”, are setphotos or promotional photos from “Die Mondvögel”, which is the holy grail of the kinski-collectors-brotherhood, since it was only aired once in german television (in the sixties) and is now lost, no one born after 1965 has ever seen this movie!

    it was directed by Peter Zadek, a highly reputated avantgarde theatre director and author. among kinski some more really good german and austrian theatre stars were in it – it’s really a pitty, this might be the best among the very few earnest projects kinski ever made.

    gone with the wind…

      Konrad, I can always rely on you to come up with the goods! Is there anything you don’t know about Klaus?! That’s such a shame – if those photos are anything to go by it would definitely have been a riveting performance. He looked really handsome as well, ahem! Let me know if anyone ever finds it – from time to time the British Film Institute gets hold of “lost but found” films and TV shows in the UK, so I’m hoping that there’s something similar in Germany.

  3. Konrad Kuklinsky says:

    well, I’m afraid this one is really lost forever. but who knows??
    I thought the same about “Grandi cacciatori” and in the end it was aired in italy 🙂

    here is some footage from “Die Mondvögel”:

    nice blog, great work! thanks a lot!

  5. hello there from italy and thank you so much for your excellent blog.
    as we apparently have a common obsession, i just wanted to let you know about a little project i realized with my girlfriend @sweetnevermind (on twitter), it’s called “kasting kinski” and it’s a series of 16 illustrations (she’s the designer) dedicated to our beloved kk, you can check them all here along with some stuff i wrote plus some embedded videos from kk’s movies:
    (start from this post and click “next” to view them in order, or see them all on our tumblr at http://wearemuesli.tumblr.com/tagged/kinski and let us know what you think about them, it’d be appreciated)

    • tinynoggin says:

      Hi Matteo! Thanks so much for the comment and the link to your Kasting Kinski project – tell your girlfriend I love the posters. I also love the linking texts, very funny! I’m going to put a link to this on the site and I hope other people will visit it too. Stay in touch. By the way, I have The Dead Eyes of London in English if that is any use to you?

  6. oh you’re so kind, i’ll definitely let claudia know about your appreciation of her posters! i’m planning to make a little pdf book out of them and all the texts, and upload it on issuu or somewhere else, and your blog will definitely be featured on its linkography page as the ultimate web resource about kk!
    so please tell me: what is kk’s role in “the dead eyes”? 😉
    i’ve watched just the german trailer here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hwkN3FL1L3w and a few more scenes where he looks pretty suspicious but he ends up being thrown out of a window (!) so i couldn’t figure it out exactly..
    so thank you again, our email is wearemuesli@gmail.com, drop us a line so we can stay in touch!
