Default Dante's Inferno

Does anybody know much about the early versions of Dante's Inferno? I know the Italians started with L'inferno, and then there's the Spencer Tracy version, but there's a one between those films by a director called Henry Otto, that not many people seem to know much about.

L'Inferno (1911) was the first full-length Italian feature film ever made (run time approx. 68 mins). A version of the film released on DVD in 2004, contained a musical score by Tangerine Dream

Dante's Inferno (1924) was directed by Henry Otto. The plot concerns a vicious slumlord and greedy businessman whose actions drive a distraught man to commit suicide. He is then tried for murder and executed, and is afterward taken by demons to Hell where he will spend the rest of eternity. In 1980, Ken Russell took footage from this film, and used it in 'Altered States'
