 Film History of the 1920s
Films really blossomed in the 1920s, expanding upon the foundations of film from earlier years.
Films varied from sexy melodramas and biblical epics by Cecil B. DeMille, to westerns (such as Cruze's The Covered Wagon (1923)), horror films, gangster/crime films, war films, the first feature documentary or non-fictional narrative film (Robert Flaherty's Nanook of the North (1922)), romances, mysteries, and comedies (from the silent comic masters Chaplin, Keaton, and Lloyd).

 Amazon.co.uk: DVD: Nosferatu (1922) - Two-disc set   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Murnau's film is a fairly free adaptation of Bram Stoker's 'Dracula', made without the consent of the Stoker estate and almost lost as a result of the legal action that followed.
The triangle created between the three leads is the heart of the film: the vampire begins to represent the unfulfilled desires within the marriage, most explicitly in the famous final scene in which Orlok approaches Ellen on her bed while Hutter sleeps in a chair.
Films and TV series in recent years have tended to portray vampires as tortured souls or as underground subcultures, but watching this film reminded me that they were much more frightening before they started trying to explain themselves.

 Sherlock Holmes (1922)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The best silent films told their tales with minimal titling, or at least concentrated the bulk of the expository titles in the first reel or two, but this SHERLOCK HOLMES tells far too much of its story in words which must be read.
The source material for this film is a stage play of the 1890s, the work of the stage's first and most famous Sherlock, actor-playwright William Gillette.
The climax is difficult to follow in general because of the poor condition of the surviving print, and although this can't be blamed on the filmmakers it only deepens the viewer's sense of disappointment.

The film was released in the USA by Export-Import Film Company (Ben Blumenthal) in 1923.
In both plotting and written dialogue, this is a largely original interpretation, bearing closer resemblance to the 2001 teen drama O than to Shakespeare, emphasizing the ill-fated Moor's descent into jealousy and madness, brought upon him by the scheming Iago, played with delicious villainy by Werner Krauss of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari fame.

Murnau probably knew the film existed, but it is unlikely that he ever saw this unauthorised adaptation, which unlike its original ended on a happy note.
Filmed on a shoestring budget (as was common for German films during the 1970s), and starring Klaus Kinski as the vampire, Herzog's Nosferatu was a critical success, considered by many to be a faithful homage to Murnau's original film.
In 1988, an Italian film rather intended to be a sequel to 1979 remake, titled Nosferatu a Venezia starring Kinski as Nosferatu along with Donald Pleasence (as Don Alvise) was released.

Murnau’s film was an unauthorized version of Bram Stoker’s 1880 page turner, and although Stoker was dead and buried, for all I know with a stake through his heart, Stoker’s widow sued for infringement of copyright.
The case dragged on, the company that produced the film went bankrupt, and the widow eventually settled for having all copies of the film destroyed.
This, fortunately, did not happen, and the film was preserved, though hardly in pristine condition.

He obtained a negative struck from one of the few surviving original prints (all original negatives were destroyed in the 1920s), dye-tinted each scene, then reassembled the print in the same manner as in the '20s.
The Alloy Orchestra, which film critic Roger Ebert has called the best in the world at accompanying silent films, wrote a new score for "Nosferatu" two years ago.

The buildup to the dramatic climax is excellent, but the film runs out of fuel a little too early and the viewer is left with a half-full cup of a movie experience.

 Amazon.com: Haxan (Witchcraft Through the Ages) - Criterion Collection (1922): DVD   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
This 1922 Danish silent film about fl magic, witches, satanism, and the persecution of said subjects during the middle-ages, which attempts to make a connection between the ancient phenomena and the modern study of hysteria (modern in 1922), has been wonderfully presented by The Criterion Collection in their new dvd.
This is apparently the most criticized part of the film, as mentioned in the commentary, and while it certainly is not as strong as the period dramas, I think it does a good job of raising valid questions, and does work with the film quite well.
The film begins with a series of woodcuts and reenactments of what was known at the time as witchcraft but also probably Satanism and possibly even Alchemy as many would see it today.

After it’s world-wide distribution in the 1920’s Bram Stoker’s widow sued the film makers on behalf of the author’s estate and consequently all prints were ordered to be destroyed.
