        Filmgegner von heute - Filmfreunde von Morgen.

      Hermann Reckendorf, Berlin. 1929.. 125 S., 1 Bl. Mit zahlr. Abb. 4°, Orig.-Leinenbd mit illustr. -Schutzumschlag.. Erste Ausgabe. - Mit dem Schutzumschlag sehr selten. - Das Buch erschien anlässlich der bahnbrechenden Werkbundausstellung 'Film und Foto', kurz FiFo, zusammen mit Werner Gräffs 'Es kommt der neue Fotograf' sowie dem von Franz Roh und Jan Tschichold herausgegebenen Band 'Foto-Auge'. Gräff und Richter ließen ihre Bände beide bei Hermann Reckendorfer verlegen, der u.a. auch 'Die Form' publizierte. Ähnlich wie Gräff war Richter mit dem Problem der Bildbeschaffung konfrontiert, so dass er auf seine eignen filmischen Arbeiten zurückgreifen musste. Um den Film in seiner Dynamik mit Abbildungen dokumentieren zu können, entschied sich Richter dazu, neben die Einzelbilder vor allem Filmstreifen zu gesellen; eine Methode, die seinerzeit jedoch von anderen Autoren nicht aufgegriffen werden sollte. Im Zentrum der Auseinandersetzung Richters stand der Film als eigenständige Kunstform, die sich gegenüber dem bloßen Unterhaltungsfilm zu behaupten hatte. Denn spätestens mit der Einführung des Tonfilms im Erscheinungsjahr wurde der Film zum Massenmedium. (Vgl. Roland Jaeger, Bleibende Dokumente des Neuen Sehens, Der Verlag Hermann Reckendorf, Berlin, in: Autopsie, Deutschsprachige Fotobücher 1918 bis 1945, Bd. I, Hrsg.: Manfred Heiting u. Roland Jaeger, Göttingen 2012, S. 257-259.) Manche Einzelbeobachtungen, die Richter in Bezug auf den zeitgenössischen Film machte, antizipierten bereits in Teilaspekten die Auffassung einer Kulturindustrie, wie sie später von Adorno und Horkheimer in der 'Dialektik der Aufklärung' geprägt werden sollte. So schrieb Richter zum Bereich der Filmthemen: 'Wir wissen sehr gut, daß Reichtum, Schönheit und Macht gerade von denen am meisten geliebt werden, die sie nicht besitzen und daß sie ihre Sehnsucht danach ins Kino treibt. Aber wir wissen auch, daß sie, nachdem sie sich dort berauscht haben, nur noch elender werden [...] Sie werden erst recht unfähig, eine menschliche Lösung für ihr Dasein zu finden. Hier ist das Kino der schlimmste Feind der Schwachen, Entmutigten und Unerfahrenen'. (53) Doch sah er, etwas optimistischer als später die Theoretiker der Frankfurter Schule, die Möglichkeit der positiven Veränderung, in dem er folgerte: 'Die Aufgaben einer neuen Generation von Filmautoren werden darin bestehen, den Film zur geistigen Befreiung des Menschen und zum Aufbau einer vernünftigen Welt zu verwenden.' (53) In seinem Vorwort machte Richter deutlich, welche Intention diese Publikation haben sollte: 'Sie sind Filmgegner? So wie der Film heute ist, kann er gar nicht genug Gegner haben. Der Filmgegner von heute hat eine Kulturmission zu erfüllen: Den schlechten Film zu bekämpfen, zu protestieren, den Protest zu organisieren. Je mehr Filmgegner, um so größer die Möglichkeit für bessere Filme.' (5) - Rotes Leinen mit blauer Prägung. - Vordergelenk etwas angeplatzt, Bll. anfänglich etwas fleckig, Schutzumschlag rückseitig partiell mit Japan fachmännisch stabilisiert, insgesamt gut erhaltenes Exemplar. - Andel 388.

        Letters of Tribute to William Gillette On The Occasion of His Farewell to the Stage In His Famous Creation ?Sherlock Holmes?

      An exceptionally large poster; 64 x 44?; backed with slightly larger linen for preservation, enabling it to be unrolled without damage. Numerous creases from folds; some small chips, tears and minor discolorations; printed in two colors. At the start of his ?Farewell Tour,? in New York?s New Amsterdam Theater, November 25, 1929, the author-playwright was presented with a book of congratulatory letters from many prominent contemporaries. This poster reproduces those in facsimile, surrounding Steele?s iconic image of Gillette as Holmes, depicted in dressing gown and with a pipe in his mouth. Accompanied by Letters of Salutation and Felicitation Received by William Gillette On The Occasion of His Farewell to the Stage in ?Sherlock Holmes,? setting in type 62 of these letters, including testimonials by Doyle, Coolidge, Belasco, Frohman, C.D. Gibson, Otis Skinner, et al.; in original printed wrappers, with Holmes in profile on the front wrapper; very good. Gillette continued touring as Holmes until 1932. Retirement was an unwelcome alternative for Gillette, who continued to appear on stage until shortly before his death in 1937.
