German expressionist F.W. Murnau's 1927 film is considered one of the most beautiful dramas ever lensed. It also nabbed three Oscars at Hollywood's very first Academy Awards. And Entertainment Weekly just named it one of the Top 10 Silent Movies. In it a sexy city girl (Margaret Livingston) talks a farmer (George O'Brien) into murdering his wife (Janet Gaynor). Of course it's pretty melodramatic by today's standards, but it remains a vibrant turning point in the history of filmmaking as a visual art form. 95 minutes Unrated.
