So how does Lang's stack up against Wagner-someone alerted me to this link-won't have time to watch it for awhile though! Amazing what's out there on YouTube! Regards, Len :lol:

I had seen only a few of those scenes. thanx. I notice Lang's wife, Thea von Harbou was the screenwriter. She also did his 'Metropolis'.

"Stack up" in what respect? Both are realizations of much the same story through such radically different media that you have to define carefully what comparison you want to make. Similarly Berg's "Lulu" and Pabst's "Pandora's Box."

Never heard of Pabst's "Pandora's Box-thanks for the alert.

As for "stack up" which would be your dessert island choice-the silent movie or the Wagner opera! Regards, Len [fleeing] :lol:

If it's a choice between a movie and a major work of classical music, which do you think I'd choose? :)

Here is another apples/oranges comparison, though enjoyably silly.
