The Holy Mountain, 1926

Leni Riefenstahl in Der Heilige Berg (Germany, Arnold Fanck, 1926). From the Taussig film stills collection
SKÖN FILMANDE DANSÖS
Den vackra bilden härinvid föreställer den tyska dansösen Leni Riefensthal såsom hon framträder i den stora Vfa-filmen Bergens hemlighet. Dansösen har här den icke så lätta uppgiften att framhäva sin egen skönhet bredvid den naturprakt, som scenerierna frän Alperna erbjuda i den märkliga filmen.
BEAUTIFUL DANCE FILM
The beautiful picture next depicts the German dancer Leni Riefensthal as she appears in the great VfA film Bergen’s Secret. The dancer has the not so easy task of emphasizing her own beauty next to the natural splendor that the scenery from the Alps offer in the strange film. | src Scenen (1927) at Projekt Runeberg
