A sound version of F.W. Murnau's Nosferatu: Eine Symphonie des Grauens (1922), almost certainly made without Murnau's knowledge. The characters are given new names with Count Orlok becoming Furst Wollkoff, and the character of a young priest is added played by Hans Behal in a Mass for the Dead sequence that was later cut due to interference from censors who objected to the religious implications.
Lotte Eisner in her biography on Murnau states that this artistic adaptation must have come from an original negative of NOSFERATU and some unused footage from Prana Film.
