Based loosely on the operetta of the same name, The Merry Widow is legendary director Erich von Stroheim’s most successful film. Starring Mae Murray, the “Girl with the Bee-Stung Lips” and idol-in-the- making John Gilbert, The Merry Widow is a delightful romp set in a fictional eastern European principality so beguiling to American audiences at the time. Murray charms as Sally O’Hara, star of New York follies troupe wooed by two princes – the good-hearted womanizer Danilo (Gilbert) and his fetishist cousin the crown prince Mirko. Duty to country forces Danilo to deny his heart and give up his love forcing Sally into marriage with a wealthy but repellant financier. Widowhood and a large inheritance bring Sally back to the kingdom and chaos ensues!
