RKO’s The Lost Squadron (1932) is a war movie that isn’t a war movie. Veterans return home to find work as Hollywood stunt fliers under Erich von Stoheim’s command. Starring Richard Dix, Robert Armstrong, Joel McCrea, Hugh Herbert, Mary Astor and Dorothy Jordan. Directed by George Archainbaud.
Don’t miss Erich von Stroheim’s Greed (1924) airing at 8:30 am EST, Wednesday, September 22 as part of TCM’s von Stroheim birthday celebration. Some of my memories of Greed from the first time I saw it.
Screwball Zasu Pitts just may have given the greatest single performance in screen history back in 1924 as Trina in Erich Von Stroheim’s famously lost classic Greed.
