A lost film, check those attics
25 July 2014 | by (California) – See all my reviews

This is one of four films Conrad Veidt made during his first stint in Hollywood and it is the only one that is missing and presumed lost.

According to the New York Times review, the plot involves a doctor who is sentenced to prison for the crime of administering euthanasia on a suffering patient. An incredibly timely story that is controversial even today, the acting was said to be over-the-top but Veidt was often accused of same and I think he is marvelous in most anything so I think we can take the review with a gain of salt. George "The Sheik" Melford directs and Arthur Edmund Carewe (The Persian in "The Phantom of the Opera") has a supporting role. I would very much have liked to have seen Carewe and Veidt sharing the screen.

Note: This film is considered to be lost and any reviews claiming to have viewed it should be looked upon with suspicion unless the time, place and circumstances of the screening are revealed.
