Plenty of direction and as much photography. There doesn't appear to be a miss or skip either.

A fascinating character study of a "great" man who deserves, but doesn't deserve, his bitter end.

Sternberg's direction makes this second only to The Docks of New York as the most accomplished of his silent films.
