The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Size: 11 x 16 cm, very good condition.

Riefenstahl started to develop the script for Tiefland in 1934, with the movie being shot between 1940 and 1944. However, it was not completed by the end of World War II and was eventually finalized and released on February 11, 1954.

It was listed as the feature film with the longest production time in history by the Guinness Book of World Records. Despite this record being surpassed by The Thief and the Cobbler (with 30 years of production from 1964 to 1995), Tiefland still stands as the live action film with the longest production time.

Legendary Finnish runner Paavo Nurmi: Authentic autograph on self made card. Hand signed in 1952.

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Size: 4,1 x 5,8 inches. Fine condition. Mounted on cardboard.

Paavo Johannes Nurmi (1897 – 1973) was a Finnish runner. Born in Turku, he was known as one of the “Flying Finns”; a term given to him, Hannes Kolehmainen, Ville Ritola and others for their distinction in running.

During the 1920s, Nurmi was the best middle and long distance runner in the world, setting world records at distances between 1500 m and 20 km.

Nurmi won a total of nine gold and three silver medals in the 12 events in which he competed at the Olympic Games from 1920 to 1928. In 1932, Nurmi was unable to compete at the Olympics, as he had received money for his running and was thus considered a professional.
