The Phantom Carriage (1921)
"Körkarlen" (original title)

It's New Year's Eve. Three drunkards evoke a legend. The legend tells that the last person to die in a year, if he is a great sinner, will have to drive during the whole year the Phantom Chariot, the one that picks up the souls of the dead…

The film is notable for its special effects, its advanced (for the time) narrative structure with flashbacks within flashbacks, and for having been a major influence on Ingmar Bergman.

Director: Victor Sjöström

Writers: Selma Lagerlöf (novel), Victor Sjöström
