Dir. Josef von Sternberg. 1925, 65 mins.

Sternberg’s impressive debut is a story of lower-depths love and loneliness, filmed on location for a pittance, in a style that foretells neorealism. The film impressed Charlie Chaplin, who cast its star, Georgia Hale, in The Gold Rush.

Free with museum admission.
