Hutter is about to embark on a journey to the Carpathian Mountains to sell a house in Bremen to the mysterious Count Orlock. Superstitious natives warn Hutter not to travel to the Count's castle, but greed overcomes him. Once there, after completing the transaction, Hutter discovers Orlock's true nature, that he is a creature of the night who drinks blood and sleeps in a coffin, and almost does not survive the ordeal.

The Threepenny opera by Bertolt Brecht( Visual )
4 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in German and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Until the mid-1930s, film producers of the early sound era often made films simultaneously in different language versions, using the same sets but different casts for each version. The few films which survive in both versions offer fascinating material for comparison. This DVD presents G W Pabst's twin versions, in German and French, of "The Threepenny Opera". Set in a shadowy, stylised and dreamlike Victorian London, the story of Mackie "The Knife" Messer and Polly Peachum is timeless, and the combination of Bertolt Brecht's biting social satire and Kurt Weill's compelling music is as fresh as ever

The Baroness appears with her new husband and resents the man's presence but for reasons other than we assume. Oetsch stays, arguing that he is not the murderer but will find the real one. There are family secrets and the anti-hero is here to expose them and the real murderer

Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse by Fritz Lang( Visual )
8 editions published between 1933 and 2009 in German and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1922 Fritz Lang made the two-part film "Dr Mabuse, der Spieler" ("Dr Mabuse, the Gambler"). He revived his evil genius in 1933 for this talkie sequel which picks up precisely where the original had ended, with Mabuse's madness, capture and incarceration. Mabuse has been in an asylum for ten years, but his crime organisation is still perpetrating an insane orgy of wanton destruction, threats, shoot-outs, thefts, explosions, bombings, burnings, and floodings. Banned by the Nazis, the film is one of Fritz Lang's most inventive crime thrillers

2 editions published in 2007 in German and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The great Boer hero, Ohm Krüger ("Oom Paul"), tells his life story in flashbacks as he lies dying in a Swiss hospital. A good example of a German anti-British propaganda film, the film is historically not entirely correct and was mainly meant to have the audience sympathize with the South African "boers" representing the German people fighting against the English

"Set in the impoverished back alleys of Victorian London, The threepenny opera follows underworld antihero Mackie Messer (a.k.a. Mack the Knife) as he tries to woo Polly Peachum and elude the authorities. With a palpable evocation of corruption and dread, set to Weill's irresistible score, The threepenny opera remains a benchmark of early sound cinema." -- container
