Greed (1924) 8mm/Musical Accompaniment | Underground Film Night: Obscure Super 8 & 16mm Movies | Berkeley

Underground Films: Greed (1924) 8mm/Music | Berkeley

The sudden fortune won from a lottery fans such destructive greed that it ruins the lives of the three people involved. The film received mostly bad reviews from critics when first released.

Originally over eight hours long, Greed was ultimately edited against Stroheim’s wishes to about two-and-a-half hours, and the full-length version is a lost film. In 1952 Sight and Sound magazine published its first list of the “10 Greatest Films ever made” where Greed was tied for 7th place.
