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

SATANAS was a three part historical film, obviously influenced by Griffith's INTOLERANCE.

Part One is set in Ancient Egypt, entitled THE TYRANT. Amenhotep, Pharoah, is in love with a young harpist, Nouri. Nouri uses her influence to get a young man she loves, Jorab, into Pharoah's service. Jorab however does not have eyes for Nouri. Jorab loves one of the Pharoah's wives, who, incidentally, once saved Nouri's mother from being stoned. Nouri is torn by jealousy but is also bound by honor. Pharoah discovers the adultery and condemns his wife but Nouri takes her place, thus reclaiming her honor.

Part Two is called THE PRINCE and is adapted from Victor Hugo's LUCRECE BORGIA.

Part Three takes place in 1917. Hans is a law student in Zurich at the outbreak of the Russian Revolution, which he champions. He leads revolutionaries in seizing the castle of his home German town under the influence of Grodski. He is against brutality but is slowly drawn into a violent regime. Hans gradually becomes drunk with power and when his girlfriend, Irene, attempts to kill the revolutionary leader, Hans must give the order for her execution. Grodski looks on Hans with scorn in supposing he is a great man and Hans sees Grodski as Satan.

This is a LOST film; no negative or positive materials are known to exist. However there are extensive stills in existence, mostly due to printing in the Illustrierte Film Kurier.

The above information is gleaned from Lotte Eisner's biography of Murnau.
