Korkarlen (1921) At New year's Eve, the tuberculous sister of the Salvation Army, Edit, asks her mother and her colleague, Maria, to call David Holm to visit her on her deathbed. Meanwhile, David (an alcoholic) is recounting the Legend of 'The Phantom Coach and his coachmen' to two other drunkards in the cemetery. In accordance with the legend, the last sinner to die on the turn of the New year becomes the soul collector, gathering souls in his coach. When David refuses to visit Edit, his friends have an argument with him, they fight and David dies. When the coachman arrives, he recognizes his friend Georges, who died at the end of the last year. George revisits parts of David's obnoxious life and in flashbacks, he shows how mean and selfish David was.

Movie Quote(s):
  • David Holm: What can I do? What are the words, the prayer - the words? David Holm: [prays] A sinner whose lips are stained with wickedness, asks, beseeches - Oh, break me, crush me, only save these three innocent ones!
  • David Holm: Forgive, forgive me.
Movie Trivia:
  • On 15 April 2005 the Norwegian heavy, psychedelic rock-band WE made a live soundtrack to the movie whilst screening it in the atrium at Studentersamfundet in Trondheim. They wore cloaks and the vocalist; Thomas Felberg sang/wailed the written passages in between scenes.
  • The church yard set was built on the studio lot at Råsunda, Stockholm, and was left intact for a number of years after shooting was finished.
  • Director Victor Sjöström disguised himself as a poor man and spent time in the slums of Stockholm in order to prepare for this movie.
  • Director Victor Sjöström traveled up to author Selma Lagerlöf's house in Mårbacka to read the scenario out loud. He acted out the whole screenplay in front of her before crashing down on a sofa, totally exhausted. She looked at the director for a long time and then asked he would care for a drink. That was her seal of approval.
  • Ingmar Bergman watched this film at the very least once every summer; either alone or in company of younger people. He also stated that this film, to him, was once "the film of all films", and that this film was a main influence on his own work.
