The Danish Dr Nikola

Michael Böhnhardt recently got in touch about a German translation he hopes to publish of Reginald Hodder's lost race novel, Daughter of the Dawn. Michael has already published German translations of several of Guy Boothby's Dr Nikola novels, which you can find mentioned on his blog here. While researching Boothby, Michael found that Danish director, Vigo Larson, made three Nikola films in 1909: Dr. Nikola I - III. Stills from the films can be found on the homepage of the Dansk Filminstitut here.
