Anonymous sent: Thanks for running this blog - really great insights into such a captivating, mysterious man.

Thank you - I’m very happy to hear people are still enjoying it!

As for your question:

"I also have a question, since you clearly know what you’re talking about, which is so valuable since there’s so little available on the film’s production - is there any official basis to Hutter’s first name being Thomas? I’ve seen him referred to as Thomas Hutter many times, but he’s never actually given a first name in the 2005 restoration, which claims to use title cards accurate to the original release. Even when Ellen is dying, she addresses him by his surname as she cries out to him!"
She does call him Hutter! It’s very strange.
There are indeed many different intertitle sets out there. Some call Ellen “Nina” which I just find to be a blatant error because it isn’t even “Mina”, who you might consider to be her counterpart in Dracula. (Or Lucy.) You have probably also seen him being called Jonathan, but it’s unlikely to be his name since they weren’t trying to make Nosferatu too similar to Dracula.Thomas is likely his name, but I can’t say I have definitive proof. The joy of being a Nosferatu scholar is never being able to be sure about anything. lmao
You may have found my scanned PDF of the original script translated to English that is inside Lotte Eisner’s book Murnau. I haven’t looked this over in a long while, so maybe there is a random note in there by Murnau or Galeen calling him Thomas, but he’s just called “Hutter” in the actual credit list, leading me to believe they really didn’t care/it doesn’t matter. Lotte Eisner writes “Thomas Hutter” in her own list of characters after the section in which she compiles the actual intertitles, so I guess you could trust her memory while writing a book decades after Nosferatu was released… or not!
Oh so ironically, I call him Jonathan privately, and I don’t know why I’ve come to do that. I accept that it’s probably wrong.

So this just happened at youtube...

The_Bitter®: It's not the original score. How untortunate.
(Deleted comment)
The_Bitter®: No, it isn't. I have original copy of the movie and score from 1922. It's the soundtrack composed later...
(Deleted comment)
The_Bitter®: +MrLeviNielsen, no it's NOT. ;]
TeaForTen: Well, if you want to get super technical, it isn't the original score, but it IS reconstructed and rearranged from it, which means some of what was originally composed (in 1921, by the way, not 1922, although the movie was released that year), can be heard. It's the closest most of us would get to the original score (aside to the other arrangement by Gillian Anderson), which I think is something you should have acknowledged instead of making such a dismissive comment.
The_Bitter®: I am right, because I am a happy owner of this movie with original score. It's different. Completely different.
TeaForTen: First of all, there is no "original score" that is completely in tact, and if you try to tell anybody there is, you are either being misinformed or deceptive. What you likely have is a reconstruction of Hans Erdmann's original score. It was either arranged by Berndt Heller or Gillian B. Anderson. Those are the people who have developed what's left of the original score into soundtracks for the film. If your DVD copy has any other name on it, I would be curious to know, so what is the name? I'm betting you have misunderstood something about your copy.
The_Bitter®: First of all and all I'm going to write is THERE is an original score. It's so rare that you just can't find it on YouTube and on Internet. I'm an expert not you, so don't try to be smart in things you in you don't have a knowledge. It's very unfortunate but... copies on dvd don't contain original soundrack. The only original soundtrack is contained in pirate copy that you can download on eMule... Maybe it's on Torrents as well, but on my original dvd, I don't have original soundrack.
TeaForTen: I've given you legitimate information that you fail to acknowledge, and I've asked you legitimate questions that you fail to answer. If you can't tell me the name of the composer of your alleged "original score", which is a very basic request, then this conversation is over. You have either been deceived or you are completely trolling me/anybody else who reads your comments.((To everybody else, don't listen to this douche. They're full of shit.)
The_Bitter®: I can't because I don't have time to launch the video now and I'm tired. it's midnight in my place. Perhaps I'll do it later and I'll let you know. Goodnight.
TeaForTen: lol Alright, Sir/Lady Expert, well just so you know, Hans Erdmann scored Nosferatu. It's very accessible information. If you don't even know off the top of your head that your copy that you're claiming is original is his work, then you are indeed a troll and have no business writing a damn thing on this video.
The_Bitter®: Nope. But you're a retard and just got banned.
TeaForTen: Ohhh nooo... how will I go on knowing I've been banned by someone I just blocked? I thought our love was real.

Oh lovely

Arguing with somebody on youtube who absolutely insists that Berndt Heller’s score isn’t a reconstruction of Hans Erdmann’s score and that they have a super special DVD of the “ORIGINAL” film and the “ORIGINAL” score (which does not exist in tact: the reason why it is reconstructed to begin with.) Meanwhile, all they’ve been doing is making short “you’re wrong, I’m right” comments against all refutes of this.

One thing I’ve learned: some people really think they’re going to fool you, while looking like the biggest derps who ever derped in the process.
