Description by OLDIES.com:

Based on Selma Lagerlof's rendition of a Swedish folktale, this moody, surrealistic drama takes its title from Death's favorite mode of transport, which must be driven by the last sinner to die before year's end. Victor Sjostrom both directed and stared in this film, fashioning a supernatural morality tale replete with atmospheric lighting and superimposition effects that were ahead of their time in 1920 and still chill today. He plays David Holm, a beliigerent drunkard who must contend with past misdeeds of pettiness and alcoholism as he gathers the souls of the dead. Will he roam the roads forever as a ghostly driver or achieve salvation beyond Death's spectre?

This disc includes the original Swedish edit: Korkarlen a.k.a. The Phantom Carriage and the Metro edit for America, released as The Stroke of Midnight. (each run 70 minutes)
