Prints From Lotte Reiniger's Prince Achmed
"The monster threatening Aladdin"
- the above beast was the inspiration for a recent drawing I made.

"Aladdin fights the demons of Wak-Wak with his magic lamp"

"Achmed fighting with the snake in the canyon"

Here's a few pics of Lotte Reiniger's animated film Prince Achmed originally posted at The Animation Archive blog. The images were taken from a portfolio of prints published in Berlin in the year the film was released, 1926. The rest can be viewed here.

A selection of screenshots I took of the film a few years back can be viewed here.
