I'm sure, Kino International in Berlin is the most printed cinema on postcard worldwide. This is No. 20 in my collection showing different posters - and it is not the last one.
The poster today advertises the film Die Brücke / The Bridge, a German anti-war film by Bernhard Wicki from 1959.
It tells about the last days in war 1945 in a small Bavarian town. Seven underaged boys receive the militarily senseless order to defend a bridge from the advancing US troops. Only one will survive the mission ...
The film received many awards and nominations, among them a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1960. It is one of the best German films of all time. It came to East German cinemas on 4 September 1964.
The postcard was published by Graphokopie H. Sanders KG Berlin.
The poster was designed by Jürgen Großmann.
