These “Oliver-Film” production stills recently came to light in a European collection of film ephemera. I’m trying to connect the dots and establish which films they may have come from. Who out there can identify these mysterious actors I wonder? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
After the passage of a century, two long-forgotten silent films return to the city of their birth…Here is a short clip from the June 25th screening of Oliver-Film’s “Im Reich Der Zwerge” and “Guido der Erste” which was held at the magnificent Ballhaus Berlin.
Music by Romain Azzaro (aka Rouge Mécanique) and Aurélien Rivière (aka DoubtingThomas)
Cinematography: Derek Howard

Mark sends a video post card from 3,900 m above sea level, in front of Piz Palü mountain. The cast and crew of “The White Hell of Piz Palü” really braved the elements during its making. This was the first movie to screen at David Oliver’s UFA Palast in 1928, Hamburg’s largest cinema palace of its time.
