Retro set for von Stroheim

Erich von Stroheim, the legendary Austrian pioneer on both sides of the silent screen, will be honored with a retrospective at the 1994 Berlin Intl. Film Festival, the fest announced Monday.

Cutting a dramatic villain profile with his monocle and starched white uniforms in a series of pix, von Stroheim’s acting highlights include the role of Prussian officer von Rauffenstein in Jean Renoir’s World War I drama “Grand Illusion.”

Von Stroheim directed such silent classics as “Greed” and “The Wedding March.” His ongoing struggle with Hollywood censors, rising budgets and the rapidly encroaching talkies eventually put him out of the helmer business and into acting.

The Berlin retro will screen all of von Stroheim’s works in newly restored prints, including early pix from the ‘teens, French 1930s fare and ’40s U.S. films. It has been put together by Stiftung Deutsche Kinemathek’s Wolfgang Jacobsen, Bernard Eisenschitz, Richard Koszanski, Helga Belach and Norbert Grob.
