"Erich von Stroheim He was known as “the man you love to hate”—and that was just among the studio chiefs he worked with throughout his two decades (1919-1933) as a director. But there was much more to the Austrian immigrant turned auteur than elaborate back stories (most of which were fake) and legendary battles with producers. Von Stroheim was also an amazing actor, as his work alongside the great Jean Gabin and Pierre Fresnay in Jean Renoir’s 1937 masterpiece confirmed. Playing Captain "

I mean, I enjoyed it back then but I didn't remember that it was that good. This is indeed a true masterpiece directed by Jean Renoir. I thought it was just brilliant and worked on so many levels.

The 1,000 Greatest Films (top 25) (25 movies items)

""Grand Illusion escapes the confines of the war movie genre. Scarcely a gun is fired in anger. The trenches are nowhere in sight. Yet through some alchemy, Renoir imbues the film with his passionate belief in man’s humanity to man... French critic André Bazin wrote of Renoir that “he has inherited from the literary and pictorial sensibility of his father’s era a profound, sensual and moving sense of reality." A film like Grand Illusion illustrates this to perfection." Peter Cowie, The Cri"
