Land Without Women
Land Without Women (German: Das Land ohne Frauen) is a 1929 German drama film directed by Carmine Gallone and starring Conrad Veidt, Elga Brink and Clifford McLaglen. It was based on the novel Die Braut Nr. 68 by Peter Bolt. The film is set amongst a community of gold diggers in Western Australia. It was made by the small independent production company Felsom Film as a Part-talkie film, the first German-speaking sound film to be released. It was followed a month later by the first all-taking film Atlantik, which had been made in Britain.
