Solved

I guess this pretty much settles the inspiration question raised by that writhing, tree-root shot from Lars von Trier‘s Antichrist, which I posted yesterday. I’m told the below still is from Henry Otto‘s silent Dante’s Inferno (1924), but it looks a little too artful and well designed for a reportedly mediocre, low-budget affair that ran only 60 minutes. I’m wondering if it might be from Harry Lachman‘s Dante’s Inferno (1935), which starred Spencer Tracy and Claire Trevor.
