Did You Know?


A copy of the film was found in Massachusetts by a film collector in 1998. The print was labeled "The Fall of Jerusalem," but had no credits other than the name of a distributor. There were only a few passing references of the film in the US, and no mention of it in European records. Nobody knew where it came from or who made it. In 2004, after years of research and detective work a lip-reading expert, and positive Id's of actors in the film led to the discovery that it was a German film called "Jeremias." See more »

A film mystery SOLVED!!!
6 December 2004 | by unclejappySee all my reviews

Several year ago, NORTHEAST HISTORIC FILM, a regional film archive located in Bucksport, Maine, received a gift of many reels of 35mm film from a collector. Among the reels was a five reel feature dated 1925 entitled THE FALL OF JERUSALEM distributed by the WHOLESOME FILM SERVICE of Boston. The film was printed on tinted safety stock, very unusual for 1925, and probably indicating that it was intended for screening in non-theatrical settings. The images and the condition of the film is extraordinary, and it has been preserved by George Eastman House.

After several years of research by Jan-Christopher Horak and other film scholars, it was determined that this is a retitled print of JEREMIAS (1922), no doubt the only one still existing. The film was directed in Germany by Hungarian director Eugen Illes, and filmed in a former Zeppelin hangar outside Berlin. This is a big budget production with many extras and lots of period costumes.

As for the film itself, its pretty dull stuff, probably on interest only to film scholars or history buffs.
