1925. Germany. Directed by Ewald André Dupont. Screenplay by Dupont, based on the novel Der Eid des Stephan Huller, by Friedrich Hollaender. With Emil Jannings, Maly Delschaft, Lya de Putti, Warwick Ward. “The strongest and most inspiring drama that has ever been told by evanescent shadows is at the Rialto…. In this picture there is a marvelous wealth of detail; the lighting effects and camera work cause one to reflect that occasionally the screen may be connected with art” (The New York Times, June 28, 1926). Courtesy of Filmmuseum, Munich. Silent, with German intertitles, live English translation, and musical accompaniment. Approx. 80 min.
