More Information About The Loves of Pharoah
Featuring thousands of extras and spectacularly grandiose production design on Berlin backlots, The Loves of Pharoah rivals Metropolis as the most ambitious German production of the silent era, and was director Ernst Lubitsch's (The Shop Around the Corner, Trouble in Paradise) last lavish German film before he left to work in Hollywood. Emil Jannings, international star and winner of the first "Best Actor" Oscar, plays Egyptian pharaoh Amenes, who must marry the daughter of the Ethiopian king (Paul Wegener, best known as director-star of The Golem) to prevent war. Things get complicated when the pharaoh's adviser Ramphis (Harry Liedtke) sets his eye on the object of Amenes' affection, Theonis (silent era icon Dagny Servaes).
For decades available only in fragments all over the European continent, this landmark film has been beautifully digitally restored and will be accompanied by the original symphonic orchestral score of acclaimed opera composer Eduard Kunneke, performed by a 16-piece orchestra conducted by Robert Israel. Don't miss this exciting Los Angeles premiere, appropriately gracing the screen of the Egyptian Theatre!
