  1. Nevertheless, what did you think of some of the film he directed; that is If you saw any of them? He is a great actor too as you point out (Grand Illusion and Sunset Boulevard to name just a few). Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂

  2. I don’t recall many from the list except the silent film ‘Greed’. I saw it in my teens, and thought it was very good. But Fifty years later, I don’t remember it that well. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. In terms of excess (and I do not mean that in a negative or positive way), the closest he had as an heir in that field was possibly the late Michael Cimino (especially with his misunderstood masterpiece Heaven’s Gate). Speaking of whom, I did a blog entry on him earlier this year. Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂
