Bunte Filmbilder
As with most fields of the arts, movie studios and their products were carefully controlled by the Reichsfilmkammer or State Motion Picture Chamber of the Reichskulturkammer (RKK or State Chamber of Culture). From September 1933, the RKK exercised complete organizational and administrative power over, “all forms of artistic creation or activity which are made public” and “all activities as soon as they appear in print, in films, or are transmitted through the air”.
Lida Baarova, mistress of Goebbels
The RKK and its subsidiary chambers were run by a collaboration of the State Ministry of Economics (Reichswirtschaftsministerium at Wilhelmplatz 1/2 in Berlin, Walther Funk, State Minister from 1937 onward) and the State Ministry for National Community Clarification and Publicity (Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda at Wilhelmplatz 8/9 in Berlin, Dr. Joseph Goebbels, State Minister). The President of the RKK was Dr. Goebbels, who appointed the Vice President and Secretary.
Bunte Filmbilder
The two 9-1/8 x 12-1/8 inch books we offer here are the first and second volumes of Bunte Filmbilder (Colorful Movie Pictures), published in 1936 by Cigaretten Bilderdienst in Dresden, which made the pictures pasted in the books available to smokers of Zuban No. 6 cigarettes. Each volume contains about 150 small, colorful pictures and 100 big colorful pictures for a total of about 300 small pictures and 200 big pictures.
