Tutankhamen
Austria, 1923

Lixie Scott, Raymond Dandy, Renée Soeré
Directed by Raymond Dandy (Raymond Frau)

With the wave of Egyptomania that exploded after December 1922 and the news of the discovery of the unviolated tomb of the Pharaoh Tutankhamen, multi-talent Raymond Dandy did not miss the opportunity to sketch a parody. The film was sold in France, Belgium, Britain, Spain, and Italy. Directed by Dandy himself, the film also featured Karl Leiter. Known under the pseudonym of Länglich, Leiter was one of the most active Austrian comics in the silent period, and Dandy found in him the ideal shoulder for his only Austrian feature film. Directed in the Viennese Listo studio, it also offered dance numbers performed by Renée Soeré. Particular attention was paid to the costumes and grandiose sets designed by Hans André.
