Variety (German: Varieté [?va?i?e'te], also known by the alternative titles Jealousy or Vaudeville) is a 1925 silent drama film directed by Ewald Andre Dupont based on the novel Der Eid des Stephan Huller (1923[1]) by Felix Hollaender (de). Jannings portrays "Boss Huller," an ex-trapeze artist who runs a seedy carnival with his wife (Maly Delschaft) and child. Huller insists that the family take in a beautiful stranger (Lya De Putti) as a new sideshow dancer, with whom he develops a new trapeze number. The trapeze scenes are set in the Berlin Wintergarten theatre. The camera swings from long shot to close-up, like the acrobats.[2]

Cast

Influence

The German director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck cites being unexpectedly exposed to the film as a child of four as the start of his interest in the medium.[3]

This film is believed to be the first documentation of unicycle hockey - it contains a short sequence showing two people playing the game.
