From the Publisher
Erich von Stroheim (1885-1957) was one of the true giants of American film history. For years, however his life has been wreathed in myths, many of his own devising. Lennig has scoured European and American archives for details concerning Stroheim's life.
From Our Editors
Erich von Stroheim referred to himself as "The Man You Love to Hate" and captivated audiences in the 1920s through to the 1950s proving just that. One of his most memorable performances was in Sunset Boulevard, and he also received wide recognition for his role in Greed. There are many myths swirling around this legendary Hollywood actor and director, but film professor and biographer Arthur Lennig chooses to tell only the man`s real story in Stroheim.
