FAUST  (1926):

Mephisto has a bet with an angel that he can corrupt Faust's soul.  The Devil delivers a plague to the village where elderly alchemist Faust lives.  Though he prays to stop the death and starvation, nothing happens.  Faust then makes a bargain with the Devil:  Faust will have the service of Mephisto til the sands run out in an hourglass, at which time the Satan will do as he wishes.  At first, Faust uses his new power to help the people of the village, but they shun him when they find out that Faust cannot face a cross.  Later, Satan gives Faust back his youth and offers him earthly pleasures and a kingdom.  Faust falls in love with a girl, but he is later framed for the murder of her brother by Satan and flees to Hell.  The girl has a child (by Faust) but is cast out into a blizzard where the child dies, and she is sent to the stake as a murderess.  Faust sees what is happening and demands Satan take him there.  Faust arrives as the fire has been started to burn his lover.  Satan robs Faust of his youth and with nothing left to live for, Faust plunges onto the fires to be with the woman he loves.  Though an old man, she recognizes Faust and sees him as a young man again as the fires consume them together.  The angel reveals to Satan that he has lost the bet because love has triumphed over all. 

DVD-R IS APPROXIMATELY 106 MINUTES; very good quality.  Silent film with English subtitles.
