The Sorrows of Satan1926
The Sorrows of Satan (1926) is a silent film by D. W. Griffith based on the 1895 novel The Sorrows of Satan by Marie Corelli. At this point in his career, Griffith had given up his independent filmmaker status by joining Paramount Pictures.
A previous version of Corelli's novel had been filmed in England in 1917, but that version was not nearly as faithful to the novel as the 1926 remake. Reportedly Griffith did not want to do this project, but as his first Paramount assignment he was not given a choice. Remarkably, however, the film turned out to be one of Griffith's most fully realized works and its critical stock has risen considerably in the last several decades. After Griffith finished the film, it was taken out of his control and re-edited by Julian Johnson. This was Carol Dempster's final screen role, although she lived until 1991.
A still from the film was used on the cover of the song "Bela Lugosi's Dead" by the English band Bauhaus.
