Lya de Putti in Phantom


1922 NR

In this beautifully restored version of director F.W. Murnau's classic film based on the popular newspaper serial by Gerhart Hauptmann, Alfred Abel stars as Lorenz Lubota, a would-be poet doomed by ambition and class. When Lorenz is hit by a carriage, he becomes obsessed with its passenger -- the daughter of one of the city's wealthiest families. But he can't have her and instead attempts to woo her evil look-alike, a prostitute named Mellitta.
