Goofs

In the scene where Connie Wallace first tells Flamarion of her love for him, the position of the gun in Flamarion's hand changes depending upon the shot. When it is a close-up of Flamarion, the gun barrel is high up, about the level of Flamarion's upper arm. In the wider shot, the gun barrel is in the crook of his elbow as his arms are folded.

Poker Faces
11 June 2003 | by (Proctorville, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Von Stroheim is superbly cast as a stage sharpshooter who succumbs to the charms of his scheming assistant. Though some may not appreciate the actor's ramrod-spined, Teutonic demeanor, such bearing is useful in the portrayal of stoicism and all the pitfalls that it engenders. Von Stroheim's dearth of emotionality makes all the more credible his character's inability to discern the falseness of personalities, and there is a unique poignancy in watching him go through the paces of a festering realization of perfidy. The plot, however, is pedestrian and, related in flashback, all the more predictable. Von Stroheim mavens should appreciate the movie, though, as should devotees of Dan Duryea, who plays a hard-drinking, done-wrong hoofer.
