The Great Flamarion
78 minutes / All ages / 1945 / United States of America / Average:
Flamarion, expert marksman, is entertaining people in a show which features Connie, beautiful woman and her husband Al. Flamarion and Connie fall in love and decide to get rid of the alcoholic husband.
Erik Von Stroheim plays arrogant vaudeville gun trick-shot artist the Great Flamarion, who tours the country with his assistant Connie (Hughes) and Al (Duryea), who are married. Connie feigns extreme attraction to Flamarion, and tricks him into "accidentally" murdering her husband during Flamarion's show. However, after the fact the trecherous woman rejects Flamarion and runs off with another man. Von Stroheim's performance is exquisite and flamboyant.
