Constructivist film magazine Soviet Screen was a weekly magazine on recent developments in film in the USSR. The cover depicts a photomontage of Douglas Fairbanks, an American actor, screenwriter, director, and producer. He was best known for his swashbuckling roles in silent films including "The Thief of Bagdad", "Robin Hood", and "The Mark of Zorro" but spent the early part of his career making comedies. Illustrated by M Getmansky, graphic artist and illustrator, originally from Taganrog. Getmansky designed book covers for publishers such as Krug, Detgiz and Gosizdat. He also produced illustrations for numerous publications, namely magazines (Krasnaya Niva and Ogonek), children’s books and travel guides (such as Soviet Travel). In 1936 Intourist issued a new Soviet Union tour guide aimed at foreign tourists and businessmen. The guide contained many illustrations by Getmansky, as well as ethnographic maps designed in his characteristic style, showing Central Asia, the Caucasus, Georgia and Armenia. Fair condition, tears and loss of material on the spine. Rubbings, staining. Partly detached cover. 14 pages.
