VARIETY (1925) aka JEALOUSY [VARIETÉ]
E. A. Dupont's Weimar masterpiece can now be seen in in a stunning new restoration, its most complete version since it was released in 1925. Small-time carnival owner Emil Jannings leaves his wife and child to return to the trapeze, now partnered, professionally and romantically, with newcomer Lya De Putti. Spotted by famed aerialist Warwick Ward, they form a trapeze trio and become the top attraction at Berlin's Wintergarten theatre. But lustful passions undo the trust required for this most dangerous work. Cinematographer Karl Freund's "unleashed" camera is the other star of this show, flying through the air alongside the acrobats. DIR/SCR Ewald André Dupont; SCR Leo Birinski, from the book "Der Eid des Stephan Huller" by Felix Holländer; PROD Erich Pommer. Germany, 1925, b&w, 95 min. In German with English subtitles. NOT RATED
