Crew
Composed by Donald Sosin
Directed by Erich von Stroheim


Rarely in history has a single film catapulted a director to the forefront of world cinema, but the innovative style and sophisticated themes of Blind Husbands made Erich von Stroheim an immediate sensation, exposing the complex layers of repression, jealousy, and lust that lie beneath the surface of an American couple's marriage. As they vacation in the Alps, a roguish officer (von Stroheim) ensnares the wife (Francellia Billington) in a web of infidelity, testing her loyalty and ultimately challenging the manhood of her husband (Sam DeGrasse).

Original music by Donald Sosin, adapted from the 1919 cue sheet. Print material courtesy of the Museum of Modern Art.
