Erich Von Stroheim's THE WEDDING MARCH
Tuesday, Jan. 26 at 7:30pm

Members $9 / Public $12 (No Refunds)

Erich Von Stroheims The Wedding March, set during the Austro-Hungarian Hapsburg regime, stars the director as the wastrelly Prince Nikki, who is advised by his parents to marry into money if he hopes to keep up his sumptuous lifestyle. During the Corpus Christi festival (much
of which is lensed in early Technicolor), Nikki spots the beautiful peasant girl Mitzi (Fay Wray). The two fall in love, but happiness eludes them: Nikki is slated to marry the homely, clubfooted daughter (ZaSu Pitts) of a
millionaire, while Mitzi's erstwhile boy friend, a mean-spirited butcher (Matthew Betz) who despises the aristocracy, promises dire consequences to Nikki for compromising Mitzi. Despite his dissipated, debauched
lifestyle, Prince Nikki develops into the most sympathetic character in the film. As it now exists, The Wedding March is one of Von Stroheim's best films; incredibly, it was originally the first half of a two-part production
(the second half, The Wedding, no longer exists).
USA, 1928, 113 min., b/w
