Following Intolerance's lead, Lang provides a triptych of stories -- but this time love is challenged to overcome death itself. In the framing story, two lovers are parted by Death (personified) but he is willing to make a deal: if she can save one of three people from him, then he will bring her lover back to life. The challenges takes place in Persia, Venice, and China with great sets (and suspenseful action) in all three -- it is said that this film was very influential on Hitchcock (by him to Truffaut, in fact). Of course, viewers are advised that this is Lang (and not Griffith) and to note the title when pondering the question of whether love truly conquers all. Still, there appears to be life after death, so no worries!
