Scope and Contents


The Alfred Junge Papers include personal and professional papers of the noted art director, as well as production and research material from individual films. Junge began his film work in his native country, Germany, at Berlin’s UFA Studios, but by 1930 he had settled in England where he worked for British International Pictures, Gaumont-British, and finally MGM-British Studios. The collection is organized into three series: I. Personal and Professional Papers, 1910-1958; II. Production Materials, 1927-1957; and III. Research Photographs and Reference Material, 1944-1945, undated. Series I contains correspondence, photographs, technical writings, and printed material from professional associations, events, and awards ceremonies. The bulk of the collection is filed in Series II, which consists of designs, set stills, and production stills from the films Junge worked on with directors such as Alfred Hitchcock and Michael Powell. Films represented in the collection include The Constant Nymph (1933); The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934); King Solomon’s Mines (1937); Goodbye Mr. Chips (1939); Black Narcissus (1947), for which he won an Academy Award; Ivanhoe (1952); Mogambo (1953); Beau Brummel (1954); The Barretts of Wimpole Street (1957); and A Farewell to Arms (1957). Series III contains research photographs of a wide variety of locations and other reference material such as postcards and clippings.
