1926- Silent-Directed by F.W. Murnau- Live Accompaniment by Randy Woltz on the Mighty Wurlitzer- this 1926 film directed by F.W. Murnau was the most technically elaborate and expensive German production until Metropolis the following year. It draws on the legendary tale of "Faust" as well as on Goethe's classic 1808 version. Decades later, audiences re-discovered the film and considered it a prime example of German Expressionist cinema. In 2006, the New York Times called it, "one of the most astonishing visual experiences the silent cinema has to offer".
