The German Influence

So, it looks like there was a strong German influence during this era - music, film, as well as our beloved boudoir dolls.

Some examples of other German-made films, include "Pandora's Box" and "Diary of a Lost Girl", both starring Louise Brooks, "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari", "Nosferatu", "Der
Weiße Teufel", starring Iwan Mosjunik (see video in my blog) and "Metropolis", starring Brigitte Helm.

From what I've learned (thanks, Sue) some French dolls had German-made heads and limbs, and these type of dolls that I've shown you, below, were exported to the USA.

I have a feeling some dolls we've thought of as French or American may, in fact, be German-made. Oh, the mystery...........
