The classic story of a young student who sells his soul to the devil in exchange for a life of debauchery. The film combines the Faust legend with a doppelgänger, or double, motif. "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, though, as his reflection begins to interfere with his newfound happiness in a most sinister way"--Container

Pandora's box by G. W Pabst( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the masters of early German cinema, G.W. Pabst had an innate talent for discovering actresses (including Greta Garbo). And perhaps none of his female stars shone brighter than Kansas native and onetime Ziegfeld girl Louise Brooks, whose legendary persona was defined by Pabst's lurid, controversial melodrama Pandora's box. Sensationally modern, the film follows the downward spiral of the fiery, brash, yet innocent showgirl Lulu, whose sexual vivacity has a devastating effect on everyone she comes in contact with. Daring and stylish, Pandora's box is one of silent cinema's great masterworks and a testament to Brooks' dazzling individuality

"Aventure Malgache" spielt zum größten Teil in Madagaskar, und erzählt von der brisanten Situation auf der Insel zur Zeit der Kontrollierung der Insel durch das Vichy-Regime, deren Vertreter auf unabhängige oder sogar Widerstand leistende Franzosen treffen. Der Rechtsanwalt Clarouse betreibt einen illegalen Radiosender und laviert zwischen den Fronten, wobei er sich auf beiden Seiten unbeliebt macht und zwischenzeitlich im Gefängnis landet. [...] "Aventure Malgache" ist ein halb-dokumentarischer Propagandafilm, der von Alfred Hitchcock im Jahre 1944 gedreht wurde. Es ist einer von zwei Filmen, die er im Auftrag des britischen Informationsministeriums in England drehte, um einen Beitrag zu den Kriegsanstrengungen der Alliierten zu leisten und der französischen Résistance gegen die Besatzung durch das nationalsozialistische Deutschland seine Reverenz zu erweisen. Der zweite dieser Filme ist "Bon Voyage." [film-dienst.de]
