"The Great Gabbo" (1929) is a fascinating tale of madness and obsession. Erich Von Stroheim stars as the Great Gabbo, a cruel ventriloquist who descends into insanity as he relies on his dummy, Otto, to express any emotion, thinking the dummy is actuallyalive. Betty Compson plays Mary, Gabbo's love interest who is driven away by his obsession. This intense drama is a treasure of the early talkie films.
