Hamburg: Bambi Kino/Kaiserkeller 1959 footage.

A year before you know who turned up, here they (Bambi Kino/Kaiserkeller) are, on home movies made for none other than Bruno Koschmider in 1959...

If your jaw hasn't dropped, then you are in the wrong place. How have these not come to light until now? And what else is out there? Kudos to the Kinolibrary tumbler for unearthing this. Go there immediately! While we are on the subject, Thorsten Knublauch has been working for some time on amazing new research regarding the Bambi Kino. He's very kindly offered to allow some of it to be posted here, due early December. Watch this space! He has also just written to say that the date on the footage is wrong... and the real story will be revealed soon. (The full version of Thorsten's research will appear in a German fanzine next month.)


  1. Thanks for posting this, This was a fun video to watch. Also want to thank you for getting me onto Mark Lewisohn's "tune in" book. That was a amazing read and looking forward to the next edition

  2. Jaw dropped and eyes fully peeled. Brilliant! I mean, Fabelhaft!
