First American Edition and First Photoplay Edition with half-title for the UFA production. Novel based on the classic Fritz Lang directed black and white silent film of the same title, starring Gerda Maurus and Willy Fritsch. Lang of course was one of the great innovators of the movie industry, having directed perhaps one of the most important expressionistic films, Metropolis, also written by Von Harbou. Published as part of World Wide's triple deck series, with this title under the heading "Adventure". Bound with two other filmed titles, The Spoilers by Rex Beach with half-title for the Paramount talking-picture starring George Bancroft and Slightly Scarlet by Percy Heath, with half-title for the all-talking Paramount picture starring Clive Brook. Very Good tight copy with paper yellowing as usual for this publisher in Very Good plus dustjacket, with only a few very light drip spots at spine. An overall bright copy of this very scarce Fritz Lang title.
