|A disguise of Dr Mabuse|
|Nice hat and pattern there, Aud Egede-Nissen.|
|Chief Inspector Norbert von Wenk regards the artworks of high society.|
|The film very briefly passes the Bechdel test when Cara and Gräfin Dusy Told talk to|
each other in prison, but in no time they're on about Dr Mabuse this and Dr Mabuse that...
P.S. This was the same year as 'Nosferatu' and the amazing 'Häxan'. What a year for European cinema! Over in the states 'King of Kings' was happening, so the year's merits may have been international. Of the lot, I believe this is my favourite. I may need to re-watch 'Das Testament des Dr Mabuse' again now, to remind myself what happened next.
It may surprise you to learn that ancient cinema looks beautiful on blu-ray. It isn't a format I advocate often, but it brings out every crinkle, every wall-paper, and is a fine way to take these thrilling stories.
