Dida Ibsens Geschichte
A print of this film can be found at George Eastman House. I viewed it in 1990, and found it to be rather undistinguished. Krauss keeps Berber a prisoner in his home, where she is guarded by an alligator (!). Veidt is ineffective as the hero. The film is indifferently acted and blandly photographed, both characteristics of Richard Oswald's early productions. Oswald was a very prolific producer/director/writer who owned not only his own company but his own theater in Berlin as well! Consequently, his low-budget productions were seem by hundreds of thousands, and he is regarded as one of the minor leaders in silent German cinema. Only a handful of his films survive today, of which ANDERS ALS DIE ANDERN, UNHEIMLICHE GESCHICHTEN, and LUKREZIA BORGIA are the most well-known. Jay Salsberg
