The Last Laugh, or Der Letze Mann, is a 1924 German film by F. W. Murnau. The film was released during the 1920's Kammerspiel movement in German cinema which was a kind of silent film which focused on character psychology. The Last Laugh was also one of the first films to be shot using a moving camera. An aging hotel doorman (Emil Jannings) is unfortunately demoted to a position as bathroom attendant due to his decrepit and worn appearance. He avoids telling his friends and family about his demotion, but word gets out anyway. His friends ridicule him, doubting that he never had the doorman position to begin with; his family disowns him. Feeling abandoned, the man sleeps in the very bathroom he works for. Is the man destined to die in misery soon? Or will things look up? Emil Jannings was the first actor to win an Academy Award for Best Actor as well as an Oscar. Be sure to catch this all-time classic.moreless
