Selected film stills from "Triumph des Willens". 1935. 18 vintage ferrotyped gelatin silver prints. Each circa 23 x 29 cm. Each with number in lower right, some with film text in lower edge in the negative. Some with number notations on the verso.

A rare group of film stills from the 1935 National Socialist propaganda film directed, produced, edited, and co-written by Leni Riefenstahl. It chronicles the 1934 NSDAP Congress in Nuremberg, which was attended by more than 700,000 participants. Riefenstahl's techniques such as moving cameras, aerial photography, the use of long focus lenses to create a distorted perspective, and the revolutionary approach to music and cinematography have earned "Triumph of the Will" recognition as one of the greatest propaganda films in history. Riefenstahl helped to stage the scenes, directing and rehearsing some of them up to fifty times. Riefenstahl won several awards, not only in Germany but also in the United States, France, Sweden and other countries. The scenes show many soldiers and other participants such as children and young people, Hitler giving his speech, other high ranking N.S. officials and various aerial views. – Some with minimal edge wear, otherwise in very good condition.
