msmichel's rating of the film Blind Husbands

Von Stoheim's directorial debut was this strong melodrama concerning an Austrian officer wooing an American doctor's wife under his nose at an alpine village. Performances are somewhat standard for the time period with Billington capturing the role of neglected wife quite well. Mountain climbing finale well executed. Worth a watch to see the genesis of his further career.
