This is one of the not so well known 'old' films that seem to crop up in various history books on the subject. It's a part of the German Expressionist movement ( seen in 'The Cabinet of Dr. Cabileri' and 'Nosferatu' and to some extent in 'Metropolis'). I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the reproduction. Not wildly enthusiastic about the musical sound track ( I am not sure that this has anything to do with what must have been the original score?). It has a sort of Frankenstein story about it ( as some of the later Frankenstein movie is almost a copy of episodes within this tale). I have no regrets about buying this. If you have not seen it before, I recommend it.
