Originally released in two separate parts as THE MYSTERIES OF INDIA, Mr. Indian Tomb movie May's film is a silent benchmark; its lavish production values and elaborate, incredibly detailed sets, complete with exotic animals, give the film an authentic look even though it was filmed entirely on a 50 acre "film city" in Germany.

Indian Tomb movie Customer Reviews
||Great film, poor edition|
Indian Tomb review Joe May's diptych is excellent - much better than after-WWWII sound remake, made by Lang himself. If the second film is a remake at all - there are so many differences between plots in May's and Lang's "Indian Tombs"

Indian Tomb DVD for sale I bought this film on recommendation. Indian Tomb movie It's an excellent story, a superb film photographically and dramatically (if you forgive the occasional melodrama that characterised silent cinema); fine attention to detail and backed by an excellent score.

Indian Tomb DVD Features
Joe May's spectacular "The Indian Tomb" captivated audiences in 1921, and was one of the biggest successes of its day. This lavish adventure thriller transported cinemagoers to an atmospheric India of the romantic imagination, with elaborate temples and palaces, exotic yogis and dancing girls, roaring tigers on the prowl and hissing cobras. Thea von Harbou's colorful plot stretches over two feature-length films, with twists and turns worthy of a serial. Ayan, the powerful Maharajah of Eschnapur, has lost his beloved wife, the beautiful Princess Savitri, but not through death. He plots revenge against Savitri and her lover MacAllan, an English officer. Ayan vows to build a tomb to his dead love; he'll supply the mausoleum's occupant. A yogi, Ramigani, prophesies that revenge will ruin the prince's life. Ayan sends the yogi to Europe to hire an architect, Herbert Rowland, who is sworn to secrecy about his commission. Rowland's fiancee Irene follows him to India, and the adventure begins. "The Indian Tomb" features a fantastic star-studded cast, topped by the legendary Conrad Veidt, who has a field day as the charismatic, sadistic Maharajah. Sumptuously photographed by Werner Brandes with a beautiful new score compiled and orchestrated by Eric Beheim, this is the most complete version available.
