Dr. Mabuse the Gambler (1922) IMDb

Commentary

The theatrical performance scene in the second half is the best part. I like Mabuse’s self-destructive behaviour, but the story is neither original nor very good.

Sequel:

The Testament of Dr. Mabuse (1933) IMDb

Commentary

The concept has matured and the curtain scene brings it all together.
