Frau Eva is a 1916 German silent drama film directed by Robert Wiene and starring Erna Morena, Emil Jannings and Theodor Loos. It was based on the 1874 novel Fromont and Risler by Alphonse Daudet. The film was Jannings' first starring role, his previous appearance having been as an extra in Im Schützengraben.[1] An ambitious wife spends all of her husband's hard-earned money and then commits suicide out of remorse.[2]
