German titles of Tom Tyler films

"Born to Battle", 1926, Film-Kurier
Now we travel to Germany to see what Tom Tyler film titles might appear like on movie posters and other film-related memorabilia. Like the Spanish Biblioteca Films film booklets, Germany also had something similar called Film-Kurier. Tom's starring roles from the 1920's to 1930's have made more than a few appearances on the covers of Film-Kurier. Surprisingly, some film titles like “The Phantom” and “Adventures of Captain Marvel” do not get translated into German. As a piece of Tom Tyler film trivia: Betty Amann, Tom's leading lady in "Trail of Horse Thieves", was born in Pirmasens, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany on March 10, 1905. With thanks to Tagesbote, Spielfilm.de, Moviepilot.de and Filmstarts.de for many of the German film titles.
