Unable to convince Sigmund Freud to serve as a consultant, producer Hans Neumann still tried to achieve the approval of the psychoanalytic community. Karl Abraham, part of Freud's inner circle and the President of the International Association of Psychoanalysis, was hired as the chief consultant for the project and promised 10% of the film's profit. Abraham tried, quite unsuccessfully, to convince Freud to endorse the project. The film caused a major rift in their friendship, which was never fully mended. Abraham died of cancer on Christmas Day 1925, before the film's release. See more »
There are a lot of important elements the restorers chose to omit from the movie. There are letters that are opened & are supposed to appear on screen for the audience to read. Gone. A man pulls up on a bike delivering a telegram. Gone. All references to the name of the man Martin Fellman are omitted. When he comes home after leaving his key,he sits down in front of the idol. It disappears leaving only a baby image. Gone. His wife see a dog & litter of puppies, She says: "I wish I had a child." Gone. The Murnau people made the movie incoherent by this censorship. Its a disgrace. They had no right to do these changes to the movie as they are not part of the creative process.
