Audience Reviews for The Great Flamarion

    Erich Von Stroheim totally inhabits the skin of a soul so burned out inside that everyday survival is an pure act of will, and he's making it until he gives in - out of loneliness deep like an ocean - to the kiss of the spider woman. Dan Duryea and Mary Hughes convincingly play the needy people who's pain gets him to leave his fortress of solitude and down to his ruin.

    This is from the Mill Creek Mystery Classics 100 Movie Pack. This is a decent little movie with a really nasty woman. She is really quite beautiful, and in the Blue Angel tradition, makes a man twice her age and not all that attractive, fall for her. There's no fool like an old fool and you don't mess with Von Stroheim. I wasn't aware that the great actor/director made some pretty weak films over the years. This one survives pretty well. Von Stroheim plays Flamarion, a trick shot artist, who is in great demand. He gets into the business of an alcoholic and his cheating wife. She uses him, changes him, and then he wants revenge. The story is told by Flamarion as another vaudeville performer holds him in his arms as he dies. It is told in flashback. I have to admit knowing that things had no possibility of working out, yet because of the interesting nature of the characters, particularly the young woman (who is beautiful, even by modern standards). Those of us who have had those yearnings to be young again and have a second chance can easily sympathize as this man makes mistake after mistake; loving too much; trusting too much. I was fairly impressed by the movie, 3 Stars, 6-17-13
