Georg Kaiser describes in his Expressionist theater play the attempt of a bank cashier to escape his middle class daily life. Director Karlheinz Martin's adaptation transfers Kaiser's play into an Expressionist film of radical stylization.

The only existing print of this classic survived in Japan where the film received a cinema release and was preserved by the National Film Center

Von morgens bis mitternachts by Karlheinz Martin( Visual )

2 editions published in 2010 in German and Undetermined and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Kassierer einer Bank unterschlägt eine große Geldsumme, um einer Dame der Gesellschaft gefällig zu sein, erntet bei ihr aber nur Spott. Er verprasst das Geld selbst, wandelt sich zum Lebemann und entfremdet sich seiner Familie. Des mondänen Lebens überdrüssig, vertraut er sich einer jungen Frau bei der Heilsarmee an, doch sie übergibt ihn der Polizei. Seine Flucht endet im Selbstmord. Der stilbildende Stummfilm trieb seinerzeit die Mittel des Expressionismus auf die Spitze, wobei er in ungewohnter Tristesse nachhaltig die gesellschaftlichen Umstände seiner Entstehungszeit reflektiert. Die Kopie des lange Zeit verschollenen Films, der in Deutschland nur in Privat- und Sondervorführungen gezeigt wurde, tauchte 1962 in Japan auf. [film-dienst]

Der Erzengel Michael wettet mit dem Teufel, ob es diesem gelingen könne, das Göttliche in Johann Faust zu zerstören; der Gelehrte forscht vergeblich nach einem Mittel gegen die Pest und macht sich aus Enttäuschung dem Teufel zu Diensten. Mephisto verjüngt den greisen Forscher und lockt ihn mit allen möglichen Ausschweifungen. Dann lernt Faust das unschuldige Gretchen kennen und verführt die junge Frau, die an den Pranger gestellt wird und später mit ihrem neugeborenen Kind durch den Winter irrt. Das Kind erfriert, Gretchen wird als Möderin zum Tod verurteilt. Voller Reue und Liebe steigt Faust zu ihr auf den Scheiterhaufen; im Tod finden beide ihre Erlösung. (Quelle: Umschlag)
