Flicker Alley, in partnership with the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Foundation is proud to present, Phantom, which marked a major turning point in the influential career and the groundbreaking style of cinema poet F.W. Murnau. In this beautifully reconstructed and restored edition from an amazingly detailed, original 1922 negative, Alfred Abel (Metropolis, Dr. Mabuse) plays Lorenz Lubota, a man obsessed with his own desires to achieve fame and wealth, who must confront the barriers of class keeping him from a woman (Lya de Putti) with whom he has had a fateful encounter. Featuring a magnificent new orchestral score by Robert Israel, this powerfully expressive and surprisingly insightful film is a triumph of German Weimar cinema and a wonderful collaboration of many of its most skilled artisans and recognizable performers. Through dazzling visuals and memorable characters, Phantom paints a portrait of the corrupting influence of money, the conformity of societal norms, and the redemptive power of family. Special bonus feature: Invitation To Phantom, A new 15 minute examination of the artistry and production history of Phantom by UCLA film historian Janet Bergstrom
Faust by F. W Murnau( Visual )

103 editions published between 1926 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Newly restored. Inspired by the German legend and by Goethe's classic tale, Murnau's Faust tells the story of an alchemist (played by Gösta Ekman) who, struggling with his faith amidst a devastating plague, is offered the power to cure and the gift of youth ... in exchange for his soul. As the diabolical Mephisto, Emil Jannings (The Last Laugh) delivers a performance of operatic scale and intensity, by turns charming, comical, and horrific

The finances of the grand duke = Die Finanzen des Großherzogs( Visual )

13 editions published between 1923 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In one of the most eclectic films of the German silent era, visual stylist F.W. Murnau broke away from the dark, foreboding dramas for which he was known to explore the realm of light comedy. Working from a screenplay by Thea von Harbou, Murnau crafted a playful espionage thriller reminiscent of Ernst Lubitsch (who had recently left Germany for Hollywood). Harry Liedtke stars as a 'benevolent dictator' who must preserve the tiny nation of Abacco by fending off creditors, wooing a wealthy Russian princess (Mady Christians) and evading a band of demonic conspirators (including Nosferatu himself, Max Schreck)

Tartuffe by Prod Co: Ufa( Visual )

7 editions published between 1926 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most gifted visual storyteller of the German silent era, F.W. Murnau crafted works of great subtlety and emotional complexity through his absolute command of the cinematic medium. Known for such dazzling films as Nosferatu (1922), The last laugh (1924), Faust (1926), and Sunrise (1927), Murnau was also drawn to more intimate dramas exploring the dark corners of the human mind. In Tartuffe, he revisits Moliére's fable of religious hypocrisy, in which a faithful wife (Lil Dagover) tries to convince her husband (Werner Krauss) that their morally superior guest, Tartuffe (Emil Jannings), is in fact a lecherous hypocrite with a taste for the grape. To endow the story with contemporary relevance, Murnau frames Moliére's tale with a modern-day plot concerning a housekeeper's stealthy efforts to poison her elderly master and take control of his estate. Kino Lorber presents the 1925 American release version with its original titles and tinting, from a 35mm nitrate print preserved by the Library of Congress and restored in 2002 by the Bundesarchiv-Filmarchiv Berlin/Koblenz and the Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau Stiftung of Wiesbaden

Nosferatu : an opera libretto : based on the film by F.W. Murnau by Dana Gioia( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on F. W. Murnau's 1922 silent vampire film - a classic of German Expressionist cinema - Gioia's Nosferatu creates a poetic version of the Dracula story in the form of an opera libretto. Written for the neo-romantic composer Alva Henderson, the opera Nosferatu has been showcased around the U.S. and will soon be staged in New York. Gioia's thrilling version of the vampire myth brings forth the terror of Nosferatu, "the undead," as seen through the eyes of the heroine, a gifted young woman trapped in a tragedy beyond her control."--BOOK JACKET
