Adventures in American Filmmaking #29


Today's adventure: No, Foolish Wives director Erich Von Stroheim isn't about to fire cameraman Ben Reynolds permanently. He's merely indulging in a little target practice on the beach as his character Count Sergius Karamzin. Still, given Stroheim's famous temperment, this might have been a good day to call in sick.

I can understand why the cameraman is ducking!

Wow. Thanks for this image. A great document of "the process"

Stephen, where did you find this image? And if you've got any other Stroheim production stills, I'd love to see them.

The image is from Kevin Brownlow's Hollywood: The Pioneers, the book that was issued to accompany his landmark 13-part documentary.
