Erich von Stroheim

Today is the anniversary of the death in 1957 of Erich von Stroheim. He wrote, directed and appeared in films from 1915-1956. Bright Lights Film Journal has an article. FilmReference.com has a filmography, a lengthy list of resources and an overview of his career. He has a Facebook page here.

From the list of his films, I have blog posts on these:

Blind Husbands (1919)

Foolish Wives (1922)
Greed (1924)
The Great Gabbo (1929)
La Grande Illusion (1937)
Sunset Boulevard (1950)
