Erich von Stroheim's directorial debut Blind Husbands is considered a masterpiece of American silent cinema. (Germ./Engl.) (Subtitles Engl.)
Set in the alpine scenery of South Tyrol it still baffles its audiences through its precise visual language and its moral ambiguity.

This print of the film is the longest and oldest version available today.
