    Perhaps unrelated: George Stevens famous film A Place Under the Sun (after Dreiser’s novel) -has exactly the same murder plot. He must have known this early masterpiece…

    I love this movie. It is filmed so beautifully. I watched a documentary about it once…I wish I could find it again. I have the full movie in one of my playlists.

    this guy is the origin of the phrase “pussy whipped”

    @rivervillager – i remember the music of “sunrise” to have been different, but i don’t know what the musical piece was called or who composed it. anyway this particular music later gets to be real melodramatic and not fitting the story told on screen. i think darker music would’ve been more appropriate, and especially later in the vids to come, i would not have the music get too over-excited and bombastic. later there’s comical things, too, but i still think it should’ve had different music.

  5. rivervillager says:

    actually, this is the soundtrack that played to audiences in 1927 with the then-new Fox Movietone sound-on-film system. Sunrise was released within weeks of The Jazz Singer which featured the Vitaphone sound-on-disc system.

    @mishinners – at 4:23 she doesnt exactly shake her rack or her twat in his face. sure, its provocative dancing for way back in the day, but not how you describe it.

  7. s4mth16ngstr24nge says:

    usually the music they put to the silent movies is not so good, but this music is not bad. there are cases when the musical accompaniment that was played in the theaters way back then was better than the music they add to it on the dvd today.

    2:41 – thats some advanced title design for the 1920′s. most Mysterious. i didnt remember that part.

    see more about this very scene in David Bordwell’s book “Narration in the Fiction Film”, 1985, pp. 120-125

    Yupie!
    I love handsome
    George “The Chest” O` Brien!!!

  11. mishinners says:

    At 4:23, she shakes her pandora’s box all in his face and then he stuffs his face into…her box. AWESOME. They don’t even do that in TODAY’S movies!

    Why?

  13. Bestmanme08 says:

    About Murnau———google the name “Frank worthen”!

  14. WHITEtotheHEAD says:

    The beginning tracking shot seen here blows my mind! It follows the man, then pans away and moves through the leaves toward the Woman from the City, the camera stays on her until the man comes into frame again and they finally kiss. It’s a minute and 27 seconds long! Brilliant.

  15. AbusiveUncle says:

    yes?

  16. vietgrove says:

    The Hayes code supposedly stated that seperate beds had to be shown, even for married couples. Not everyone abided by it ’till after ’34 though – see Busby Berkeley’s “Honeymoon Hotel” number from 1933, which ends with Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler in bed together.

  17. vietgrove says:

    dude this film was made in 1927?

  18. BillyProductions says:

    still hilarious how sex cant be shown (even consensual, between two married people, an act of love) but choking and drowning and other acts of violence are shown in explicit detail.

    another backwards functioning here in the US

  19. PipamirSolo says:

    The man should have dumped the lady when she starts planning on ways to kill his wife

  20. sacrificaltotem says:

    you may be right though, i can see it when thinking of Pandora’s box,

  21. LemonVamp says:

    I dunno, 20s movies were less censored until later on. The separate beds could be placed there intentionally for symbolism

  22. MissyHolland says:

    I think a baby implies sex as well, and
    they have one. But marcopolis was right;
    even people actually married (like Lucy &
    desi) were chaste on tv!

  23. sacrificaltotem says:

    yea well they could not really show 2 people in the same bed.( it would imply sex) even up until the 1950s .

  24. marcolopolis says:

    seperate beds was common back then

  25. nillzz says:

    yeah, i was thinking the same.
