Die Büchse der Pandora

Deutschland 1928/1929 Spielfilm

Summary

Pandora′s Box

Dr. Schoen, owner of a large newspaper, has fallen under the spell of the beautiful florist Lulu. Not concerned with what others may think, he marries Lulu. Shortly thereafter, Lulu can no longer stand him, shoots him and is prosecuted. She then flees to Paris with Schoen′s son Alwa and another friend. But soon Lulu falls into the hands of a blackmailer and Alwa becomes a cardsharp. Once again, Lulu has to escape, this time her goal is London, where she finally meets her fate. She becomes a prostitute and, on Christmas Eve, Jack the Ripper′s next victim.
