Two early feature films by Erich von Stroheim. "Blind Husbands" (1919 silent) made von Stroheim an immediate sensation, exposing the complex layers of repression, jealousy and lust that lie beneath the surface of an American couple's marriage. "The Great Gabbo" stars von Stroheim as an egotistical ventriloquist who casts a Svengali-like spell upon an ingenue (Betty Compson) against a backdrop of singularly strange numbers; one of Hollywood's earliest and most peculiar musicals.
