A Whole City Block for a Movie Set -- August 26, 2023

Photoplay, August, 1923

I see that I have neglected to write about the 100th anniversary of Erich von Stroheim shooting much of Greed, an adaption of McTeague by Frank Norris, in San Francisco. I will have to backtrack and post some more items. 

Photoplay, August, 1923

Director Stroheim greets Zasu Pitts and Gibson Gowland, Trina and McTeague, when they arrived in San Francisco.
