About

For some critics this is a mutilated masterpiece of the 1930s, while others wonder what the fuss is about. Von Stroheim directs and takes the lead as an impoverished Austrian aristocrat forced to choose between his true love - the lowly Wray - and a wealthy heiress. Von Stroheim goes to lengths to show that Vienna was a corrupt place at the time and the class system brooked no opposition, but it falls at two essential hurdles: as an actor von Stroheim just isn't very good and Wray is a wimp.
