A few extra thoughts
CHASE | 08/15/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I just watched the restored 2009 Kino version of this amazing film, and was completely blown away. What an amazing film, and how influential it appears to have been. I quickly scanned the other reviews, and no one seems to have commented on how
much Disney took from this for the "Night on Bald Mountain" section of FANTASIA.
I also have a feeling that M-G-M might have been influenced on THE WIZARD OF OZ ...
particularily in the "flying monkeys" sequences. And I'm sure that, given some more time think about it, other films that were influenced would come to mind.
One bit of warning ... the young Faust looks an awful lot like Tony Curtis in his
SOME LIKE IT HOT drag performance. And Emil Jannings Satan often seems like a cross
between Divine and Maudie Frickert. Somehow, thought, this just adds to the enjoyment."
