    After the film hit the screen it brought down the WWI US embargo to German movies, that was the impact of dancer Apollonia (Pola) Negri to the audience. Only Isadora Duncan had such an effect at that time.

    Fantastic addition, thanks RL!

    I do not care one slight bit that movies from this era are silent.

    It is always a major treat to be able to witness recordings that are over an entire century old. Truly a doorway to the distant past.

    “Where is My Treasure?” was produced during the First World War. “Passion” was released soon after WW1, but it may have been shot during the last days of the first major conflict.

    This is even prior to the first television.

    If I may be so bold, in the “decades” listing section I think there could be an entry for the very primitive days (pre 30s). I know that most of the productions from this era are lost, but this is precisely why the surviving few need to be treasured.

    Nowadays, even people living on the streets do have cellphones capable of recording video. But there was a time when cameras were such a rare sight.
