Die Büchse der Pandora - Pandora’s Box

Pandora's Box, Georg Wilhelm Pabst (1929)

Pandora's Box is a 1929 German silent melodrama film based loosely on Frank Wedekind's plays Erdgeist (Earth Spirit, 1895) and Die Büchse der Pandora (1904).Directed by Austrian filmmaker Georg Wilhelm Pabst, the film stars Louise Brooks, Fritz Kortner, and Francis Lederer. Brooks portrays a seductive, thoughtless young woman, whose raw sexuality and uninhibited nature bring ruin to herself and those who love her.
