Greed (1924)

Director: Erich von Stoheim
Starring: Gibson Gowland


Trina wins $5000 on the lottery, but becomes frightened to loose it. She refuses to spend even a penny of it, and chooses to live in ever-growing poverty instead. When her husband, McTeague, tries to take control of the situation, the story takes an even darker turn.

The story is based on the gothic novel McTeague, first published in 1899, written by American novelist Frank Norris. Would you like to read the book?

Powerful even in its incomplete form, Erich von Stroheim’s Greed is a spoil of cinematic riches and a harrowing treatise on the corrupting allure of money.
