A rare printed program from the notorious propaganda film "Die Rothschilds" commissioned by Joseph Goebels and completed in 1940. The movie played on basic Nazi stereotypes of Jews having hooked noses and being materialistic, immoral, cunning, untrustworthy and physically unattractive. The film presents a propagandist biography of banker Mayer Amschel Rothschild and his sons, who use rumors of a Napoleonic victory at Waterloo to profit on the resulting stock market crash. The program is 8pp. large 4to., Berlin, 1940, released as an issue of the magazine "Illustrierter Film-Kurier", and lists cast members and gives a synopsis of the film, with several scenes depicted within including the conniving and plotting of the title characters. Shows folds and file holes to the left edge, else very good. Sold with a second similar program released by "Illustrierter Film-Kurier", also 8pp. large 4to., advertising the film "Weisse Sklaven" ("White Slaves"), a propaganda film released in response to Eisenstein's classic "Battleship Potemkin", and depicting a violent mutiny aboard a Russian warship by Bolshevik revolutionaries. Very good. Two pieces.
