(1938) Erich von Stroheim, Michel Simon, Armand Bernard, Aimé Clariond, Serge Grave. This is another forgotten von Stroheim gem. A group of college boys form a secret society with an ultimate plan of going to America. There’s a mystery afoot, though, when people start disappearing. Things take a turn for the worse when an art professor turns up dead—murdered! This is a fantastic film with stellar performances by Simon and von Stroheim. And talk about atmosphere…wow! Memorable. Interesting to see Von Stroheim with hair. In French with English subtitles. From 35mm.
