German Cinema 1: Imperial Germany

Listing everything German I’ve seen through 1918, after which the Weimar Republic was founded. The titans of this era were Danish imports Asta Nielsen and Urban Gad. During World War I, Robert Wiene and Ernst Lubitsch were working on some new ideas, and with the latter’s help Polish actress Pola Negri became a star.

To see: The Life and Works of Richard Wagner (1913), Die Tango-Königin (1913), Der Andere (1913), A Venetian Night (1914), Deutsche Helden (1914), The War Sofa (1914), The Sun’s Revenge (1915), Der Tunnel (1915), Homunculus (1916), A Coin the Colour of Battle Field Grey (1917), Dornröschen (1917), Der ewige Zweifel (1918), The Queen of the Stock Exchange (1918), Harry wird Millionär (1918), Icarus (1918)
