Die Abenteuer des Prinzen Achmed (1926) Poster

Trivia

One of the earliest feature-length animated films (only two Argentinean films, both now lost, may predate it).
Lotte Reiniger cut figures out of black cardboard with a pair of scissors, and joined movable parts with thread in order to animate them. From 1923-26 about 250,000 frame-by-frame stills were made and 96,000 were used in the film. Her husband, Carl Koch, was responsible for the photography in all her films until his death in 1963.
Although some non-public screenings of the completed film occurred in Berlin, Germany, as early as 2 May 1926, the first public screening was in Paris in July 1926, through the mediation of Jean Renoir.
