The Student of Prague (1913)

The Student of Prague is a 1913 film about a young man who sells his soul to the devil. It was remade under the same title in 1926. This 1913 version stars and is directed by Paul Wegener, who is much better known as the director of The Golem. Stellan Rye, who died in 1915 a prisoner of war in France, co-directs.

via Youtube, though this running time is shorter than what is officially listed for the film:



It's embedded above without English subtitles.

The one below appears to be the same film and has English intertitles, but it's even shorter:



Some of these older films are hard for me to figure out in regard to length, especially is there are similar films from roughly the same period.
