Would love to see it
30 December 2008 | by (Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

I wonder if this film survives.

I have seen stills from it in a book on Asta (in German, so I can't actually read it) & it looks like a fun little film, with Asta obviously playing a dual role, via trick photography.

It almost appears to be a comedy. At least I get that impression from the wonderfully shocked look on her face and body language as she sees 'herself,' the other version of her grinning knowingly as the first Asta nearly collapses back onto a table.

I'm sure it would be a blast to watch, whether it was a comedy or not...much like Mary Pickford's masterful work in 'Stella Maris' four years later.

I wish more of Asta's films were available on video. The few I have seen greatly speak to her possession of 'it' and to her ahead-of-her-time naturalistic acting style.
