THE EYES OF THE MUMMY
The Eyes of the Mummy is the beginning of the collaboration of a legendary trio, Lubitsch, Negri and Janning. It was Pola who explicitly asked to be directed by Lubitsch. This first real drama by Lubitsch has Pola Negri, Emil Jannings and Harry Liedtke as the leads. A German painter falls in love with a dancer of an Egyptian temple. He kidnaps her, but is pursued by the grandmaster of the religious cult the girl belongs to.
