The sentence "virally anti-Semitic propaganda film Jud Süss" isn't right. Shouldn't it be "virulently anti-Semitic propaganda film Jud Süss?" I'll make the changeunless someone objects.

Merge with UFA[edit]

Since it was merged with Universum Film AG in 1921, probably these two articles should be combined. Twang (talk) 20:00, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

List of films made at Babelsberg[edit]

I removed The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari from the list of films, since it was made in Weissensee at the Lixie studios (formerly owned by Continental-Kunstfilm). Also rewrote the Metropolis pic caption - Homunculus (1916) directed by Otto Rippert with a script by Lang, predates Metropolis by several years, as does Aelita (1924). >MinorProphet (talk) 00:28, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
