Posters We Don’t Own – German Edition

I’ve been looking over a lot of German film posters lately. There’s some really remarkable ones, mostly in a good way, from the 30s through the 50s. They frequently take different approaches from the American marketing materials. Lots of watercolor paintings, often moody/anguished subjects. Similar to the oft-used Italian approach, but the tension tends less toward violence and passion, more toward unease. At least to my eye.
