Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic!
Watching FW Murnau’s FAUST at Butt-Numb-A-Thon, complete with live organ music, was a real treat. The famous German expressionist flick deals with a man’s deal with the devil and there’s some amazing early effects work on display, including the moment that is shown below.
I love this image of Emil Jannings in complete Mephisto get-up standing over the small town, nearly engulfing it with his crazy-ass wings. It’s a rather disturbing image that reminds a whole lot of Disney’s Night on Bald Mountain segment of Fantasia later on.
Reader Brady Crane submitted this pic and it’s a doozy. Hope you enjoy!
If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here.
Holy skin-tight outfit, Batman! Tomorrow’s pic is very nice!
