"Although he is known as the finest fencer in Prague, Balduin bemoans his lot in life. In the depths of his despair, the poor university student is accosted by the mysterious Scapinelli, who makes him a deal that seems too good to be true: in exchange for his choice of Balduin's meager possessions, Scapinelli offers the staggering sum of 600,000 gold pieces. Agreeing to the terms, Balduin watches in amazement as Scapinelli approaches the mirror and summons Balduin's reflection from it, walking away with the blank-faced doppleganger in tow. Balduin senses he's made a terrible mistake, but begins to enjoy his new life as a wealthy socialite, finding love with a young countess. The hefty price of his bargain becomes clear, thoughs his reflection begins to interfere with his newfound happiness in a most sinister way"--Container

Der weisse Rausch White ecstasy ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in German and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Although made in 1931, this film is still astonishing today. The story is extremely simple. Leni, a daring young girl, is visiting for the second time a ski-resort. The local ski-teatchers agree to organise a "fox-hunt" for her. Leni and Hannes are "the foxes", and about 40 other skiers will have to catch them, starting with a 15 minutes delay. It's not the story that makes this film, but the extremely spectacular, thrilling shots about ski. How many crew members and figurants broke their bones in making this picture? is a question every specator will ask himself! On the other hand, the film also reveals us the beauty and the delight of ski, like only a genuine black & white picture could do! If you have the chance to see this picture, don't miss it: you won't regret, even if you are not in the least interested in ski or sports"--Www.imdb.com (as viewed on 9/20/2010)
