Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari
Designed by stuartm65
Rare German promotional art for Robert Wiene's 1920 film "Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari". The deranged Dr. Caligari and his faithful sleepwalking Cesare are connected to a series of murders in a German mountain village, Holstenwall. Caligari presents an example of a motion picture "frame story" in which most of the plot is presented as a "flashback", as told by Francis. The narrator, Francis, and his friend Alan visit a carnival in the village where they see Dr. Caligari and the somnambulist Cesare, whom the doctor is displaying as an attraction. Caligari brags that Cesare can answer any question he is asked. When Alan asks Cesare how long he has to live, Cesare tells Alan that he will die before dawn tomorrow – a prophecy which is fulfilled. Francis, along with his girlfriend Jane, investigate Caligari and Cesare, which eventually results in Cesare kidnapping Jane. Caligari orders Cesare to kill Jane, but the hypnotized slave refuses after her beauty captivates him. He carries Jane out of her house, leading the townsfolk on a lengthy chase. Cesare falls to his death during the pursuit, and the townsfolk discover that Caligari had created a dummy to distract Francis. Francis discovers that "Caligari" is actually the director of the local insane asylum, and, with the help of his colleagues, discovers that he is obsessed with the story of a monk called Caligari, who, in 1093, in northern Italy used a somnambulist to murder people as a traveling act. After being confronted with the dead Cesare, Caligari reveals his mania and is imprisoned in his asylum. A "twist ending" reveals that Francis' flashback is actually his fantasy: he, Jane and Cesare are all inmates of the insane asylum, and the man he says is Caligari is his asylum doctor, who, after this revelation of the source of his patient's delusion, says that now he will be able to cure Francis. The artwork is in the public domain.

Good product and even greater customer service.

by Ms M. on Nov 12, 2017

The T shirt that I had bought was a little too large but Redbubble staff were prompt in helping me with the issue and ordered a replacement for me in record time. Customer service is really top notch. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good T and even greater service. The quality of the T shirt itself wasn't as good as I expected. The fabric felt thin between my fingers but I guess that's what differentiates the classic T shirt from the premium quality T shirt. May put in extra coin next time to get the better quality one. Other than that, great novelty product.

Great Service and Products!

by Beverley O. on Oct 11, 2017

I purchased a T-shirt for my boss. It arrived quickly and in very cool packaging. Loved the little clothespin. I had gotten the wrong size and he needed to return it. We were both amazed and how quickly and easy the whole process was. Not to mention that he was asked to simply pass on his too-small T-shirt and was sent a replacement for free. I turned on another office mate to your website and she has started her Christmas shopping already. I will continue to spread the word on all of your great items!!!!
