| Fritz Lang's First Screenplay Proved to Be Influential
Joe May's Hilde Warren and Death is notable for being Fritz Lang's first screenplay and containing an incarnation of death that precedes his own Destiny, Sjostrom's The Phantom Carriage and, of course, Bergman's The Seventh Seal. Lang also has an uncredited role as an old priest.

The film begins with a fourth wall breaking moment of including a shot of the director, Joe May, and his dog with an amusing subtitle that reads informs us that the German Shepherd had reluctantly approved of the screenplay for the film before more typical introductions of the characters and their place in the story which traces Hilde Warren's life, the challenges she faces and death's offer to claim her at successive stages of her troubles.

*The print available now on Youtube is in need of restoration and the poster removed the inter-titles and replaced them with subtitles over the action which considerably shortens the running time although he claims the print is complete otherwise and I noticed nothing missing from the fairly adequate Wikipedia page summary of the plot.
