DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHERS, once feared lost, is believed to be the only gay-themed movie from Germany’s progressive Weimar era that survived destruction after Hitler took power. The film tells a compelling story of secrecy and oppression that continues to play out in today’s world. The film stars Conrad Veidt (the somnambulist in The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Colonel Strasser in Casablanca) as Paul Korner, a violinist whose romance with a talented male student is thwarted when a blackmailer threatens to expose the relationship and Korner's homosexuality, then a crime under Germany's notorious Paragraph 175.
