The salvation hunters ; The case of Lena Smith (fragment)( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before making (sound) film history with The Blue Angel, Viennese-born filmmaker Josef von Sternberg directed a series of thematically and stylistically daring silent films. This DVD presents the first and last of his surviving silents, digitally restored from archival 35mm elements and supplemented by a new video essay by film historian Janet Bergstrom. The Salvation Hunters, von Sternberg's self-financed, socially conscious directorial debut, won praise from Charles Chaplin, among others. It concerns three young people who are taken under the wing of a rich man, only because he wants the young woman to prostitute herself. The sole extant fragment of The Case of Lena Smith brings the director's youthful memories of fin de siècle Vienna vividly to life
