Matrimony is a Swedish production staring Lil Dagover, the female lead in the classic German horror film The Cabinet of Dr Caligari, who also appears in many Fritz Lang and FW Murnau films. This poster was produced by the Richardson Studio. It has an impressive motion-filled design, including both the logs moving down the stream and water dripping off the film stars. The image is probably based on a still from the film itself but it doesn’t explain why the male character’s right leg is incongruously bent in an unnatural manner.
