Time For More Odd Art


This charming photograph depicts the famous German comedic actor, Karl Valentin, the star of film and stage. I'm quite sure that no one needs to be reminded of his big hits during the early twentieth century: "Der neue Schreibtisch","Die verhexten Notenständer", "Das Christbaumbrettl", "Der Firmling", "Mysterien eines Frisiersalons", "Der Sonderling", "Der Feuerwehrtrompeter", "Panoptikum", "Im Photoatelier", "Der verhexte Scheinwerfer", "Im Schallplattenladen", "Kirschen in Nachbars Garten", "Musik zu zweien", "Die Erbschaft", "Donner, Blitz und Sonnenschein", "In der Apotheke", "Simplicissimus" and "Karl Valentins Hochzeit".

A little known fact about Karl was that in addition to being a stellar comedian and harp player, he was also a raging homosexual. It has been said that Liberace fashioned his life after Karls. Except for the harp thing.
"Harps are just too gay for men, even if they are" Liberace is quoted as saying to a person who claims he met him once at a piano store in Boise, Idaho..
