Did You Know?
[shouting at actors while shooting Foolish Wives
(1922)] I'm making this picture for the theatre! Not for the actors!
Not very well documented is von Stroheim's second marriage to Mae Jones, a seamstress and dressmaker. The marriage was brief, but produced one son, Erich von Stroheim Jr.
His films as a writer/director are often set in Austro-Germanic or Graustarkian locations, such as Vienna for Merry-Go-Round
(1923), _The Wedding March (1928)_ and The Honeymoon
(1928), the kingdom of Monteblanco in _The Merry Widow (1925)_ and the kingdom of Kronberg in Queen Kelly
