John Gilbert and Greta Garbo were the pinnacle of screen romance in their day. And that chemistry is still very much in evidence viewing their films today. FLESH AND THE DEVIL is probably their best screen appearance together. It is simply a gorgeous film; without question one of the most beautifully photographed films of the silent era, heck, any era. Cinematographer William Daniels was indeed a master artist. Both Garbo and Gilbert look stunning, and the plot almost doesn't matter (although it is quite entertaining). It has a fine full orchestral score by Carl Davis. This DVD also includes an alternate "happy" ending to the film . Actually, it is a scene added to the end of the film. It is completely unnecessary and spoils the mood of the film, still, I'm glad it is available to be seen. There is also a 30 minute documentary "Settling the Score" which is interesting. If you are a fan of Garbo, Gilbert, silent films, or just great cinema, FLESH AND THE DEVIL should not be missed.
