Description by OLDIES.com:

Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 1868 ratings.
Alpha Video is to be commended for releasing an important classic of early cinema: Paul Wegener's, "Student of Prague."
It is a pretty good print with a very good score and is virtually the only copy on the DVD market.
Student of Prague is a classic story of Balduin, a student/fencing expert who sells his soul to the devil with the expected disastrous results.
But the surprises are the sets, camera motion and exterior shots in such an early motion picture.
It is also fun to watch Wegener as a much younger (and slimmer) man than we see in his film, "The Golem."
I hope that Alpha will continue releasing early silent cinema classics especially at such an attractive price.
