The Merry Widow (Original Film Program) - von Stroheim, Erich (director, screenw - 1925. 
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], Los Angeles 1925 - Original program for the 1925 film, Erich von Stroheim's first effort after his 9-hour masterpiece, "Greed," released in 1924. Includes an essay about von Stroheim working on-set, with quotes from the director throughout. A lush romantic meolodrama with touches of humor involving a European prince (Gilbert) who falls for American "danseuse" Murray. The relationship falls prey to every manner of trouble, and the never-married couple eventually reunites on location at Maxim's in Paris. A rare program for an early and restrained gem by one of the great directors of the silent era. Saddle-stitched wrappers, 16 pages, 9 x 12 inches. Near Fine, with a few tick marks next to the list of the cast, a single small library stamp, and a neat holograph ink notation of the date and place where the film was seen (and program purchased), at the Embassy Theatre on Broadway, New Year's Day, 1926.
