The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1926)
[2nd watch]
Rewatchathon 2021 #4. This isn't just because I enjoyed it so much I watched it twice (although it is very good), but because the BFI Blu-ray has a choice of soundtracks: the first is the original 1926 musical score; the second is an English voiceover narration recorded in 2013 but based on the director's original text. Really, the latter wasn't worth bothering with (I wrote a little more about that on Letterboxd).
