Trivia:
A music score was recorded using the DeForest Phonofilm sound-on-film process. However, this soundtrack version was presented only at the Century Theater in New York City beginning on 30 August 1925.See more »
Goofs:
Plot holes: The tip of the spear Siegfied is killed with exits through the chest. Since Siegfried is invulnerable except at the entry point this should not be possible. The same impossible chest wound is shown later to be the one bleeding when the murderer enters the room.See more »

one of the great masterpieces of world cinema, 2 June 2003
Author: rwkirchhoff from santa paula, ca

essential viewing (and listening)...the newly-restored Munich Film Archives dvd of this film is simply wonderful. the G. Huppertz score is a marvel (lovingly restored by Erich Heller making use of the widow's piano score). Kurosawa's tribute to this classic can be seen in his handling of the "siege of the third fire tower" in RAN)...and, of course, Kriemhild's vindictive widow was the model for the Wicked Witch in SNOW WHITE... a landmark of international cinema: not to be missed.
