Vintage German Film Poster 'Die Intriguen der Madame de la Pommeraye' 1922
Marlene Dietrich in colour
The Adventures of Prince Achmed is a 1926 German animated fairytale film by Lotte Reiniger. It is one of the oldest surviving animated feature films. The movie features a silhouette animation technique Reiniger had invented which involved manipulated cutouts made from cardboard and thin sheets of lead under a camera. The technique she used for the camera is similar to Wayang shadow puppets, though hers were animated frame by frame, not manipulated in live action.

“My first stage role with a speaking part, believe it or not, was as a priest. It wasn’t until I began acting in films that the producers and directors saw me primarily as a bizarre villain”.
