A Tribute to Erich Wolfgang Korngold

The copyright to the rare images of Erich Wolfgang Korngold all belong to ‘The Brendan G Carroll Collection’ and if anyone wishes to use them, they must request permission. These requests may be sent to:

“A collection of unique photos of Erich Wolfgang Korngold accompanying a rare test recording of TOMORROW - in its chamber version - for the film THE CONSTANT NYMPH with Sally Sweetland dubbing Joan Fontaine, and the ensemble comprising Louis Kaufman (violin) Eleanor Aller (cello) and Korngold himself at the piano. This recording is a test and differs somewhat from the final version that appears in the film, where the opening lines of the first verse are spoken by Charles Boyer. The film was never shown due to complex copyright issues. Korngold is pictured here from age 4 until his last photo age 60, with several showing him at the piano, and with famous colleagues such as Max Reinhardt, Jascha Heifetz and Bette Davis, as well as his wife Luzi and his parents Dr Julius & Josephine Korngold. The last photo shows his grave in Hollywood with a facsimile of his autograph of the Mariettalied from the opera Die tote Stadt.”—Brendan G. Carroll
