DIE UNBEKANNTE (The Unknown) (1936) * with switchable English subtitles * - AUDIO PROBLEMS

Sybille Schmitz, Jean Galland and Ilse Abel, Frank Wisbar

Die Unbekannte (The Unknown) was adapted by director Frank Wysbar from his own novel (co-written by R. C. Muschler). Sybille Schmitz, who was previously so memorable as the attractive blood-sucker in Dreyer's Vampyr, heads the cast as woman-of-mystery Madeleine. The story begins at the ending, as Madeleine's dead body is pulled from the river. With no identification on her person, Madeleine remains unidentified -- to everyone but the viewer, who is apprised of the girl's melancholy history via flashback.

DVD-R is in German with switchable English subtitles. Approx. 84 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!

IMPORTANT:  Due to technical problems with the film, the last 6 minutes does not have sound.  However, we were able to line up subtitles from a known script with the silent portion of the movie.  Unfortunately, we have not been able to find a copy with the complete soundtrack.
