PRETTY BABY IN VIENNA, AUSTRIA

otto otto 1

A very cute little girl poses for her photograph at the studio of Wilhelm Otto in Vienna, Austria. This baby has personality galore. She is sitting on a fur covered chair and wearing a large bow in her hair. Her large eyes are wide open and she seems to be intelligently taking in all that is happening in the room in front of her. This cabinet card photograph is in good condition. Note the weak bottom right corner. The corner of the card is complete but apparently was bent sometime in the past and may be fragile (see scans). The middle of the reverse of the cabinet card has residue from it’s former life in a photograph album.

INGE EGGER : BEAUTIFUL AUSTRIAN ACTRESS OF THE STAGE AND SCREEN

This vintage real photo postcard features a portrait of Austrian stage, television, and film actress; Inge Egger (1923-1976). One of her notable performances was her lead role in the operetta film, “The Rose of Stamboul (1953). The IMDb credits her with 41 acting roles between 1944 and 1960. She also graced the cover of four popular magazines. Interestingly, she worked as a medical technical assistant in the Berlin Federal Health office for 13 years beginning 1960. Egger looks quite beautiful in this close-up photograph. She is holding something in her right hand. I believe that the object is a cigarette holder with a cigarette in place. This postcard was published by Film Bild Zentrale (FBZ) while she worked for Ostermayr Films. This postcard image of Miss Egger is uncommon. An image search failed to produce an identical photograph of the actress. Nor did a survey of two major auction sites. This portrait postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

CAMILLA VON HOLLAY: PRETTY HUNGARIAN SILENT FILM ACTRESS

water buffalo 2

water buffalo 3 This vintage real photo postcard features Hungarian actress Camilla von Hollay (1899-1967). She was born in Budapest. Her father was a factory director and as she entered young adulthood her parents tried to steer her into going to medical school. Instead, Camilla pursued acting. She was active in film during the silent film era. IMDb credits her with sixty-eight film credits between 1916 and 1930. Early in her movie career she appeared in films with Bela Lugosi. Later, he became known in the US for his portrayal of Dracula. Camilla was blonde and attractive. Many of her films in the 1920’s were filmed in Germany. Her first acclaimed role was in “The Lightship” (1922). Camilla is quoted as stating that film “offers me the opportunity to live my life, to walk in many different forms, and to see myself in a hundred mirrors of just as many human figures”. It is believed that Camilla’s acting career disappeared with the advent of sound film. It is likely her Hungarian accent was seen by film companies as unsuitable for significant roles. She was married to a journalist. Nothing is known about her post acting life. This portrait postcard was published by Iris Verlag/Amag. Iris Verlag was a popular Austrian postcard producer. Amag (Albrecht & Meister) was a publisher located in Berlin. The company took over Aristophot in 1909. Amag ceased production in 1920. This photo portrait postcard is in excellent condition (see scans).

PRETTY ACTRESS HERTHA FEILER AND HER ADORABLE WIRE HAIR TERRIER

felder

felder 1

Hertha Feiler (1816-1970) was an Austrian actress. She was of Jewish descent. Feiler was married to comedian Heinz Ruhmann. The pair starred in several films together. The IMDb credits Feiler with appearing in 33 films between 1937 and 1968. Originally, Feiler wanted to be a pianist but a medical problem (inflamation in her arm) caused her to look for another artistic profession. She made her film debut at the age of 21. Over time, she became a popular actress. She often played “ladylike and cheerful roles with charm”. She fell in love with Ruhmann while he was directing her in “Louder Lies (translation)” (1938). The Nazis considered Feiler to be one fourth Jewish so there were limits placed on her acting opportunities. In the 1950’s she took on more mature roles.  She tended to play women who were confident and cheerful but pragmatic. She retired from acting in 1968 due to illness (cancer). Feiler was known to be an excellent swimmer and equestrian. Miss Feiler is very pretty in this photograph. Her dog, possibly a wire haired terrier, is adorable. The postcard was published by Ross Verlag as part of a series (no. A 3077/2). The photographer was Ludke. There is a logo of a film studio in the lower right hand corner of the image. Look below to see a youtube video featuring Hertha Feiler and Heinz Ruhmann. This portrait postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF AN EXQUISITE MOTHER AND HER YOUNG SON

This image is an exceptionally beautiful cabinet card portrait of a pretty mother and her adorable young son. Mom is very well dressed and wearing a necklace, ring, and earrings. She appears confident as she stares at the camera. Her son, standing on a chair, has his arms draped around his mother’s shoulders. He is wearing a nautical type outfit. There is a book on a table in the background. An inscription on the reverse of the photograph indicates that mom’s name is “Jetty” and her son’s name is “Erich”, or possibly, “Emil”. The inscription is difficult to decipher, so the names I provided are just my best guess. The cabinet card photo was taken at the Strauss studio. Strauss had studios in Vienna (Austria), Brunn (Czechoslovakia), and Budapest (Hungary). It is likely that this photo comes from the studio in Brunn. This cabinet card has excellent clarity and is in excellent condition.
