The Wonderful Lies of Nina Petrovna


Dir. Hanns Schwarz (1929).
This late silent spectacle, produced by Erich Pommer, stars Brigitte Helm as a Garboesque woman of affairs in pre-revolutionary St. Petersburg; Franz Lederer (Francis Lederer, once he emigrated to the US) is the young cadet she loves not wisely but too well.
