Felsom Film

Felsom Film was a film production company which operated in Weimar Germany between 1922 and 1933. It was founded and run by the two producers Hermann Fellner and Josef Somlo. The company's name is a merger of their surnames.

During the 1920s, the firm embarked on a series of co-productions with the British studio Gainsborough Pictures.[1] In September 1929 the company released Land Without Women, the first German language part-talkie, ahed of the largest German company UFA who did not release Melody of the Heart until December 1929. Following the Nazi takeover in power they dissolved their company and fled into exile in Britain.
