Kind of ironic that Murnau was a fighter pilot in the Great War. Murnau was amazing in that he could tell such rich stories on film with so few intertitles. Very few in Sunrise, only one in The Last Laugh. Many contemporaries said 4 Devils was his best film, better than Sunrise, Nosferatu, Last Laugh, Tabu. Sadly, we will probably never know.
And on the pedestal, these words appear, My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings. Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
