FOOLISH WIVES (1922) B/W "silent" 109m dir: Erich von Stroheim

w/Erich von Stroheim, Miss DuPont, Maud George, Mae Busch

Von Stroheim wrote, directed, and stars in this sophisticated, complex drama of a dashing European nobleman who tries to seduce the wife of an American envoy (along with every other woman who crosses his path). Detailed production is visually elegant.
