...Foolish Wives (1922) is an American drama silent film written and directed by Erich von Stroheim. Although uncredited, the motion picture was produced by Irving Thalberg, who would go on to become one of the studio heads of all time at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The drama features von Stroheim, Rudolph Christians, Miss DuPont, Maude George, and others.
When released in 1922, the film was the most expensive film made at that time, and billed by Universal Studios as the "first million-dollar movie" to come out of Hollywood. Originally, von Stroheim intended for the film to run anywhere between 6 and 10 hours, and shown over two evenings, but the Universal studio heads were opposed to his idea. The studio bosses cut the film drastically before the release date.
In 2008, Foolish Wives was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
