Archive[LGBTQ] Lesbian 1931 Iconic Movie Mädchen In Uniform "Girls in Uniform" was one of the earliest narrative films to explicitly portray Lesbians and homosexuality. Mädchen In Uniform by Christa Winsloe and directed by Leontine Sagan with artistic direction from Carl Froelich, who also funded the film. Christa Winsloe also wrote the screenplay and was on the set during filming. The film remains an international cult classic. An archive of five original vintage photographs from the 1931 movie. This archive includes four 3.5" x 5.5" photograph postcards of lead actress Hertha Thiele, one 1" x 2" black and white photograph of Hertha Thiele, and one 6" x 9" German pamphlet from another Theile film, titled The First Right of the Child. Each photo postcard captures various portraits of Hertha Thiele, as she expresses subtle gazes to the camera in uniform. The movie was nearly banned when it hit the United States. It wasn't until the First Lady of the state of New York Eleanor Roosevelt saw the importance of the movie that the ban was not implemented. Eventually the film was banned as "decadent" in Germany by the Nazi regime, which reportedly attempted to burn all of the existing prints. Many of the cast and crew were Jewish, and those who could not escape from Germany died in the camps. Assistant director Walter Supper killed himself when it became clear his Jewish wife would be arrested. Thiele lived up to her character’s boldness and "the film’s antiauthoritarian stance" by firmly refusing to appear in nazi propaganda: "I don’t blow with the wind each time it changes directions". This archive is in very good condition.
