Haunted Screen: Expressionism in the German Cinema and the Influence of Max Reinhardt

Haunted Screen: Expressionism in the German Cinema and the Influence of Max Reinhardt

By Lotte H. Eisner

The golden age of German cinema began at the end of the First World War and ended shortly after the coming of sound. From THE CABINET OF DOCTOR CALIGARI (1920) onwards the principal films of this period were characterized by two influences: literary Expressionism and the innovations of the theater directors of this period, in particular Max Reinhardt. This book demonstrates the connection between German Romanticism and the cinema through Expressionist writings.
