The Wedding March 1928

Zasu Pitts, Erich von Stroheim - The Wedding March

Years of work and millions of dollars wasted on a story that, in its present form, was hardly worth telling. The beauty of many of the scenes is nullified by a pig-sty atmosphere. The Corpus Christi procession to St. Stephan's, with Franz Josef in all his mediaeval glory, is beautifully presented. But there are other scenes that will repel audiences. Von Stroheim is awkward, but Fay Wray's work is her best yet.
