Scene from an early Fritz Lang film, Der mude Tod ("Weary Death"). Experimenting with a new sort of sketch aesthetic.
Death in the Hall of Flames, where each candle represents a human life. He gently gathers a candle flame in his hands, and it briefly becomes a squirming baby before disappearing.
Bernhard Goetzke was such a fantastic Death in this movie - right up there with Bengkt Ekerot in The Seventh Seal.
(I can't help but think he would also have been dead-on for the character of Frollo, if they had only made a German version of Hunchback.)
