A visual perfectionist with perverse inclinations, von Stroheim was unwilling to compromise in his quest for artistic brilliance, making him one of Hollywood's most celebrated directors -- even as he became its most despised. Written by lauded film scholar Richard Koszarski with an original score by Howard Deutsch.
This film is only available in Standard Definition and has been priced accordingly.
