Herr Tartuff / Tartuffe (1925) DVD9
Tartuffe is based on a play by Moliere, to which writer Carl Mayer (who also penned The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari as well as The Last Laugh) added a framing device to make the movie more modern.

An old man (Hermann Picha) is ill and being tended to by his housekeeper (Rosa Valetti.) She is slowly poisoning her charge, and has convinced him that his only heir, a grandson (Andre Mattoni,) is living a life of sin as an actor. The old man disinherit the grandson and leaves his fortune to the maid. When the grandson comes to visit, he is thrown out. As he walks from the house, he walks up to the camera and says "You who witnessed this scene may rest assured that I shall not give up without a struggle."
