The Phantom Carriage

Directed by Victor Sjöström

The story is based on an old Swedish folk tale which states that the last man to die just before the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve is doomed to drive the Phantom Carriage for the following year collecting all of the spirits of the dead. When David Holm proves to be that man, he learns of the selfish life he has led and how it has impacted on people around him.
