Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.
Cabaret (musical)

The action opens in the Kit Kat Klub, a decadent, seedy cabaret at the dawn of the 1930s in Berlin. A neon sign reading "Cabaret" lights up. The Klub's Master of Ceremonies, or Emcee, together with the cabaret girls and waiters, welcomes the audience to the club ("Willkommen"). The action then cuts to a train station downtown, where Clifford Bradshaw, a young American writer coming to Berlin in the hopes of finding inspiration for his new novel, is arriving on the evening train. On the train, he meets Ernst Ludwig, a German who offers Cliff work if he ever needs it. He also recommends a boardinghouse for Cliff to live in.
