Starring Louise Brooks, once said to be the most beautiful woman in the world. The story of a society climber who leaves the New World to fall into prostitution in London, then meets a grim end at the hands of Jack the Ripper.

Directed by the legendary G W Pabst, this one could be an eye-opener for those who haven't previously explored silent films. Be warned, though, it's a bit of an epic at over two hours. For those impatient to see the Jack the Ripper sequence it begins at approximately 1 hour 47 minutes into the film.
