One of Hollywood's earliest - and most peculiar - musicals, The Great Gabbo stars von Stroheim as an egotistical ventriloquist who casts a Svengali-like spell. Director James Cruze allowed von Stroheim to endow the character with his signature flourishes, resulting in a wicked cocktail of garish stage shows and Austro-Hungarian villainy that is a diabolical delight.
