Kindly Help Identify LOTHAR WOLFF 's Friends & Films

Unread post by JFK » Tue Jan 15, 2013 12:01 pm

Lothar Wolff, was an editor (The Last Will of Dr. Mabuse, Baroud, The March of Time series...),
assistant director (The Squeeker, Meet the Sister ...) ,
and producer (The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone, Man on a String ....)
imdb, on the ball as always, gave Mr. Wolff two separate niches within its walls
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0938281/ http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0937852/

The images in this thread are of items almost entirely from Mr. Wolff's estate.
Any help in translating the letters and inscriptions, or in identifying the faces and films, would be welcomed.
The eagle-eyed will observe, among the coming posts, photos of such Wolff pack pals as Cuddles,
directors Pabst, Ingram, Fejos, and Lamac, and Louise Brooks.
(Some images -thanks very much-were identified in another thread)

Nice beard on Thea von Harbou.

I think the fellow carting around Anny Ondra in the first shot is Czech comedy star Jindrich Plachta.

Any idea on the films, or people?

Proof (below), once again, of the forensic skills of I. Elliot

Ladies in the top image are Anny Ondra and Adele Sandrock;
in the second, Felix Bressart is the man in the glasses and wing collar,
director Karel Lamac grinning next to him, and then
Andre Pilot, all in white, standing.

The shot of the two guys with the camera about halfway down on the scrapbook pages--the guy with the glasses behind the camera is G. W. Pabst.

The photo of Rex Ingram in Arab garb is in costume for "Baroud"
