F. W. Murnau (Germany,1920)

Long considered a lost Murnau film, Journey Into The Night was recently discovered at the East German Film Archive. According to Lotte Eisner in her definitive book on Murnau, the film is “somewhat melodramatic” - not a rediscovered Murnau masterpiece, but Murnau nevertheless. The sole surviving copy suffers from the loss of some titles and continuity.

• Directed by F.W. Murnau. Screenplay by Carl Mayer, based on the Danish script “The Conqueror” by Harriet Bloch. Photographed by Max Lutze. With Olaf Fonss, Erna Morena, Conrad Veidt.
