Horror STUDENT OF PRAGUE, THE

THE STUDENT OF PRAGUE (1935) Anton Walbrook, Dorothea Wieck, Theodor Loos, Erich Fiedler. A magnificent horror-fantasy film!  The setting is Prague in the 1860s.  Walbrook plays Balduin, a handsome young student.  He and his pals celebrate the birthday of the innkeeper’s daughter, Lydia, for whom Balduin has affections.  But into the inn walks a beautiful singer named Julia. Balduin is swept away by her charms, but winning her love comes with a price; for hovering over her life is the sinister Dr. Carpis, a Satan-like figure who’s more of a human shadow than a flesh-and-blood being. Carpis “helps” Balduin obtain Julia’s affections and financial success, too.  Before long everything seems to be going Balduin’s way.  However, the price is a heavy one, and Balduin’s life soon sinks into the depths of madness and terror.  This terrific movie is filled with contrasts of light-hearted gaiety and shadowy dread.  Walbrook and Wieck are superb, but Loos, as the evil Dr. Carpis, steals the show in a role usually given to actors like Karloff or Lugosi.  English subs. 16mm.
