Synopsis: Erich Von Stroheim's first directorial effort has himself playing the roue - an Austrian officer out to seduce the neglected wife of an American surgeon on vacation in the Alps. The two men take a climbing expedition together with potentially disastrous results. This silent gem is rather crude in its acting, cinematography, and editing - but it is Von Stroheim's original story that fascinates.
