Boss Huller and his wife are small time trapeze performers appearing in a
carnival. They make the big time when they meet the famous Artinelli and
become part of his new act. When Boss (Emil Jannings) discovers that his wife
and Artinelli are having an affair, he plots murderous revenge. Featuring
breathtaking cinematography by the legendary Karl Freund (Metropolis, Dracula),
Variety is one of the major (though often overlooked) masterpieces of German
Expressionism. Variety was drastically shortened for the film's US release.
