No one who ever saw Erich Von Stroheim in action can not remember the bull necked somewhat diminutive man. Both director and actor, star and supporting star, his screen presence spanned silent and talking films. I believe almost all living stars would not fill his shows were it not for the gimmicks of talking films, special effects, and time. He could strut standing still!This movie Foolish Wives is a delight to watch. Good acting, marvelous pacing, and a rousing if not satisfying ending. Silent film means the actors really do the work. Enjoy it my fellow film lover.

Overly long and boring. Stroheim plays part of lecherous fraud. Disjointed. It isn't about foolish wives at all, rather a self-indulgent actor/director.
