Murnau's Sixth film is among the LOST: a synopsis follows.
13 September 2001 | by (Putney, VT) – See all my reviews

Wilton, a hunchback, repulses women, but returns a rich man from Java, where he discovered a diamond mine. He romances Gina, who is on the rebound. Wilton has also learned Javanese secrets of cosmetics, oils and perfumes with which he enchants her. She however is reconciled with her former lover and stops seeing Wilton. Wilton creates a poison to mix with his gift of oils and unguents which will kill anyone who kisses Gina, while she is protected by an antidote. Her lover is killed and another is affected by the symptoms. She rushes to Wilton to learn the truth and secure the antidote. He tries to overcome her, kisses her and dies when she snatches the antidote from him and runs to her stricken friend.

The film was praised as being visually stunning, the characters "bathed in such atmosphere....a kind of psychic perfume."

This is a LOST film - no negative or positive material is known to have survived.

Above gleaned from Lotte Eisner's biography on Murnau.
