Fantasy WANDERING JEW, THE

(1933) starring Conrad Veidt, Marie Ney, Basil Gill, Anne Grey, Dennis Hoey, Jack Livesey.  This is a big, sprawling epic fantasy.  Veidt plays a Jew who goes to Christ, asking him to cure his mistress’s illness.  Christ tells him that when she returns to her real husband she will be cured.  Refusing to let her, Veidt essentially condemns her to death.  Then, when Christ is staggering toward his crucifixion, Veidt spits on him in contempt.  Christ condemns him to wander the Earth until he returns.  The rest of this captivating film details Veidt’s wanderings throughout the centuries, not being allowed to die until he becomes almost Christ-like himself.  Amongst other things, he becomes a warrior, a merchant, and a doctor as he wanders across the world.  Although the film deals greatly with Christianity (both positive and negative aspects) it is not really a religious film per se.  There are many memorable moments.  Veidt is great in his first English-speaking portrayal.  Not to be missed!  From 16mm.
