Nile Water (French: L'eau du Nil) is a 1928 French drama film directed by Marcel Vandal and starring Jean Murat, Max Maxudian and Lee Parry. Originally made as a silent film, it subsequently had a musical soundtrack added to it. It was the first French sound film, shot using a system owned by Gaumont. However, the system never took off and American and German technology came to dominate.
