Greed

When: Sat., Oct. 3 2015

Not all great films have been released on DVD. Erich von Stroheim’s Greed, the silent film version of Frank Norris’ novel McTeague, chronicles "how the love of money destroys the lives of three friends in 19th-century California." Originally close to 10 hours long, the final version for he film has been lost. But a shorter version still exists. It screens today at 5 p.m. at the Cleveland institute of Art Cinematheque. Sebastian Birch, composer and Assistant Professor of Music at Kent State, will provide live piano accompaniment. Tickets are $10. (Niesel)
