Avant Garde. A short film about a sleazy balding man trying to con people out of money by passing off a counterfeit coin. A strange little morality play that makes a point about how far the German people had fallen during the poverty years of the Weimar Republic.
(Germany, 1928, B&W, 21 mins, dir. Erno Metzner, with Heinrich Gotho & Eva Schmid-Kayser, silent) (#11634)
