Tres páginas de un diario( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tres páginas de un diario, estrenada en septiembre de 1929, fue la segunda versión cinematográfica de la novela "Diario de una perdida" de Margarethe Bhme. Curiosamente, la primera fue interpretada en 1918 por Erna Morena, actriz que un año antes había protagonizado "Lulu", adaptación de la obra de Frank Wedekind que fue, también, el título que unió por vez primera al realizador alemán G.W. Pabst y a la actriz norteamericana Louise Brooks: LA CAJA DE PANDORA (LULÚ), estrenada en enero de 1929. Estos dos títulos, junto a "Crisis" (1928), integran lo que se conoció como la "trilogía erótica" de Pabst, lo que puede dar una pista de los problemas de censura y distribución que tuvieron en su momento ambos films
