About

Zur Chronik von Grieshuus (Chronicles of the Grey House) was one of the major UFA productions dating from the age of silent film. In 1924, the UFA mustered all the best forces available for the filming of this novella by Theodor Storm. The screenplay was written by the Metropolis author Thea von Harbou, the principal roles undertaken by Lil Dagover, Paul Hartmann and Rudolf Forster and the cameraman was Fritz Arno Wagner, who had filmed Murnau’s Nosferatu two years previously.

To top it all off, the soundtrack of the film featured original orchestral music composed by Gottfried Huppertz, who had already composed the score for Fritz Lang’s Nibelungen (available on Pan Classics PC10345) and would subsequently compose the soundtrack for Lang’s Metropolis.
