STG Presents Trader Joe's Silent Movie Mondays - FAUST (1926) at The Paramount Theatre on Monday, March 9, 2015. Featuring Christian Elliott on the Mighty Wurlitzer!
Mobilizing the full resources of Germany's Ufa Studios, director F.W. Murnau (Nosferatu, Sunrise) orchestrated a colossal adaptation of Goethe's FAUST that ranks alongside Fritz Lang's Metropolis as the greatest achievement of the German silent cinema. Gösta Ekman is Faust and Emil Jannings stars as the diabolical Mephisto, delivering a performance of operatic scale and intensity. FAUST was Murnau's last German film. Directly afterward he moved to the U.S. to begin his American directing career.
