The Life and Works of Richard Wagner, directed by Carl Fröhlich, was first released on 20th November 1913. It was the first ever ‘bio-pic’, and as such about who else but Wagner? What is extraordinary, however, is that it predates D. W. Griffiths and Birth of a Nation, usually described as the first ‘long’ silent, at a time when most silents ran for 10 minutes at most. Fröhlich’s film runs for over 80 minutes! Available for the first time on DVD, restored from the original.
