Emil Jannings Autograph

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Size: 7 x 8,5 inches. Fine condition. Horizontal centerfold.

Emil Jannings (1884 -1950) was a German actor and the first winner of the Academy Award for Best Actor. He won the 1928 Oscar for two films, The Way of All Flesh and The Last Command. He also starred in F. W. Murnau’s The Last Laugh, a film notable in silent cinema for its lack of title cards, and in the 1922 film version of Shakespeare’s Othello.

Besides The Last Laugh, Jannings worked with Murnau on two other films, playing the title character in Herr Tartüff and Mephistopheles in Faust.

During the Third Reich, he starred in several films which were intended to promote Nazism, particularly the Führerprinzip: Der Herrscher (“The Ruler” 1937), The Youth of Frederick the Great (1935), and The Dismissal of Bismarck (1942). Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels named him “Artist of the State” in 1941. His involvement with the Nazis ended any chance he may have had for a comeback in the United States.

Jannings was one of the highest paid actors of his time.

Jannings died in 1950 in Strobl, Austria, of cancer at the age of 65. This letter was written at his place of death.
