3 Silent Classics by Josef von Sternberg (1927-1928)

Vienna-born, New York–raised Josef von Sternberg directed some of the most influential and stylish dramas ever to come out of Hollywood. Though best known for his later star-making collaborations with actor Marlene Dietrich, von Sternberg began his career during the final years of the silent era, dazzling audiences and critics with his films' dark visions and innovative cinematography. The titles in this collection, made on the cusp of the sound age, are three of von Sternberg's greatest works, gritty evocations of gangster life (Underworld), the Russian Revolution (The Last Command), and working-class desperation (The Docks of New York) rendered as shadowy movie spectacle.

Writers: Herman J. Mankiewicz, Jules Furthman, Josef von Sternberg
Starring: George Bancroft, Emil Jannings, William Powell, Betty Compson, Evelyn Brent, Jack Raymond
