This intriguing text overturns a myth of film history by examining new evidence surrounding the authorship of Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari - a film that still exerts its gothic spell after nearly a century. A new introduction considers the place of German Expressionist cinema within the European revival of Gothic at the turn of the 20th century.
DAVID ROBINSON is a film critic, historian, author and director of the Pordenone Silent Film Festival. His many books include World Cinema: A Short History (1973; 1981) and Chaplin: His Life and Art (1985; 1992; 2001).
