The Ufa-production Wege zu Kraft und Schönheit/Ways to Strength and Beauty (1925) was the most popular and most important German Kulturfilm of the silent era. The action was an idealized, somewhat naïve approximation to health and beauty in conformity with nature. Today, the documentary is best known as the first film to feature Leni Riefenstahl.
