The Way of All Flesh is a 1927 film directed by Victor Fleming. The film stars Emil Jannings in a role that, along with the film The Last Command, would earn him the very first Academy Awards for Best Actor. The film tells the story of a bank clerk who is seduced by a woman and loses the securities he was transporting.

Unfortunately, despite its acclaim, the film has been lost to time, and it is unknown how many copies there are and if any have survived. There are, however, two surviving clips of the ending as well as a few stills, which means there may still be surviving copies somewhere. The clips and stills can be found below.
