  2. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film The Great Flamarion

    Erich von Stroheim gives a standard impressive performance. But for me, the real winner was Mary Beth Hughes. She ought to have been picked up by more renowned directors before she was lost to the TV film world. Anthony Mann proves he was good at his job

  3. Simone Starace's rating of the film The Great Flamarion

    This noirish melodrama is also an interesting meditation about theatre, seen as a distorting mirror of a highly stylized reality. Not surprisingly, Mann fills up the screen with mirrors and curtains, suggesting his charaters are always acting, both on and off the stage. Here you can find a nice selection of his mirror/curtain shots: http://simonestarace.blogspot.it/2012/02/la-fine-della-signora-wallace-great.html

  4. Judsi McDun's rating of the film The Great Flamarion

    Stilted acting and an implausible basis to the story made this diffucult to enjoy. He doesn't want the cops called because he'll be dead by the time they arrive? It took him an hour to die! But then again, it also took an hour for the cops to get there. Don't die in Mexico City in the 1930s!

  5. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Great Flamarion

    The Blue Angel seen by Hollywood. Von Stroheim is exceptional in The Great Flamarion. You have to see his act in the theater. A great discovery. Recommended.
