Flesh and the Devil (1926)

Flesh and the Devil

Movie Information

In Brief: Clarence Brown's 1926 John Gilbert vehicle, adapted from Hermann Sudermann's novel The Undying Past, is the film that made Gretta Garbo a star — and for that, we should all be eternally grateful. Beyond Garbo and her chemistry with Gilbert, there's not much to commend this two-tissue tale of star-crossed romance in pre-WWI Austria, but Garbo is at her best here, and that alone is worth the price of admission. The Hendersonville Film Society will show Flesh and the Devil on Sunday, May 21, at 2 p.m. in the Smoky Mountain Theater at Lake Pointe Landing Retirement Community, 333 Thompson St., Hendersonville.
