THE LOVES OF PHARAOH (1922) * with hard-encoded English subtitles *

Emil Jannings Paul Biensfeldt Friedrich Kühne Albert Bassermann Harry Liedtke Paul Wegener Ernst Lubitsch

The Ethiopian King Samlak offers his daughter Makeda to the powerful Pharaoh Amenes, in order to secure peace between the two countries. What was intended as a political move ends as a debacle. Instead of Makeda, Amenes chooses Samlak's beautiful slave girl, Theonis. Nevertheless, Amenes cannot secure the love of Theonis, as she is in love with a young Egyptian, Ramphis. Having suffered humiliation, the Ethiopians declare war on Egypt. Amenes is injured in a battle and perishes - but only seemingly. The happy union between Theonis and Ramphis is in peril when Pharaoh Amenes returns to claim his wife and his throne.

DVD-R has hard-encoded English subtitles in place of the (missing) intertitles. Approx. 98 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
