Description

Faust (MGM, 1926). Insert (14" X 36").
One of Germany's most important directors during the 1920s, F. W. Murnau was a cinematic genius. Best known as the director of Nosferatu (1922), he also filmed an early version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1920) and the brilliant character study Der Letzte Mann (1924), as well as this, a stunning adaptation of the Faust legend. With Gosta Ekman as Faust, an aged seeker of knowledge and pleasure who turns to dark forces to satisfy his longings, and Emil Jannings as Mephisto, the demonic servant who answers Faust's summons. Also featured was the lovely Camilla Horn as Gretchen, the woman with whom Faust falls in love. After a staggering six months of production and two million marks, Murnau's Faust is one of horror's most visually stunning cinematic nightmares, an archetypal tale of love, power, morality, temptation, and redemption that sizzles with passion hotter and redder than the Devil himself. This was the film that won Murnau a contract with Fox Studios in Hollywood and is voted by critics today as one of the best horror films of all time. This exceedingly rare insert is in remarkable condition given its age. Only tiny tears in the bottom border and small creases in the bottom left section can be detected. Rolled, Very Fine-.
