    I’ve only seen the silent version. How much does the film benefit from sound?

    I haven’t read the book, but I did read Ernst Junger’s “Storm of Steel”, with perhaps most alien mindset of any work of non-fiction I can recall.

      Well, my impression was that it was made with the intention of being a sound picture and the accompanying silent version was a requirement of Universal. So, if that’s true, the sound version can be said to be the “correct” one, in a sense.
