Reviews

"The thesis of this unusually interesting book is that the German films of the twenties were filled with premonitions of the German totalitarianism of the thirties."--Nation
"One of the great works of film history, this look at early German cinema, first published in 1947, is still a must-have for cineastes and scholars alike."--H. J. Kirchhoff, Toronto Globe and Mail
"The book is an invaluable guide to a golden period of cinema."--Christopher Wood, Times
