Erich Oswald Hans Carl Maria von Stroheim (born Erich Oswald Stroheim;
September 22, 1885 – May 12, 1957) was an Austrian-American director,
actor and producer, most noted as a film star and avant garde, visionary
director of the silent era. His masterpiece adaptation of Frank Norris's McTeague titled Greed
is considered one of the finest and most important films ever made.
After clashes with Hollywood studio bosses over budget and workers'
rights issues, Stroheim was banned for life as a director and
subsequently became a well-respected character actor, particularly in
French cinema. For his early innovations as a director, Stroheim is
still celebrated as one of the first of the auteur directors. He helped introduce more sophisticated plots and noirish sexual and psychological undercurrents into cinema. He died in 1957 in France of prostate cancer at the age of 71. Beloved by Parisian neo-Surrealists known as Letterists, he was honored by Letterist Maurice Lemaitre with a 70-minute 1979 film entitled "Erich von Stroheim." Read More >
