The second and last movie directed by screenwriter Thea von Harbou was based on the work of author, poet, and a playwright Gerhart Hauptmann (1862-1946), whose career lasted from the 1880s until just before the Nazi era in Germany. He deliberately ceased writing and withdrew from public life upon Hitler's rise to power -- in turn, ironically, the German film industry immediately seized upon his novella for this adaptation.
