Max Ophüls Letter
Max Ophüls was a German-born film director who worked in Germany (1931–1933), France (1933–1940 and 1950–1957), and the United States (1947–1950). He made nearly 30 films, the latter ones being especially notable: La Ronde (1950), Le Plaisir (1952), The Earrings of Madame de... (1953) and Lola Montès (1955).

The letter is in regards to one of his early films, the most acclaimed is Liebelei (1933), which included a number of the characteristic elements for which he was to become known: luxurious sets, a feminist attitude, and a duel between a younger and an older man.
Predicting the Nazi ascendancy, Ophüls, a Jew, fled to France in 1933 after the Reichstag fire and became a French citizen in 1938. After the fall of France to Germany, he traveled through Switzerland and Italy to the United States in 1941, only to become inactive in Hollywood. He eventually received help from a longtime fan, director Preston Sturges, and went on to direct a number of distinguished films.
This German poster is from the 1982 film 'Querelle', which was the final film of German director Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Based on a story by Jean Genet, this film stars Brad Davis, Franco Nero and Jeanne Moreau.
The poster features artwork by Andy Warhol and was printed in very small quantities for the German premiere of the film. The same basic image was taken and reproduced in various forms. I was told that I have one of the German version.
Don't get excited this is not an original signed Andy Warhol print - it is an original 1982 film poster that utilized Warhol artwork. Poster measures 23x33 inches and condition is a mess with lots of flaws. Get ready I have other related items to this movie.
